About this Event


		DARE TO DREAM: Important Conversations about Immigration image

The Dream Project and Busboys and Poets have partnered up to bring you a special book series- Dare to Dream: Important Conversations about Immigration. Through monthly book talks participants will explore immigrant stories.

This month we will meet several young immigrant authors and poets who participated in PEN America's DREAMing Out Loud program, as well as have a conversation with the program's co-founders, award-winning Mexican novelist Álvaro Enrigue and Charlie Vazquez, a poet and novelist who formerly served as deputy chair of the Bronx Council on the Arts.

DREAMing Out Loud is a series of tuition-free writing workshops for young, undocumented students from the City University of New York, who came to the United States when they were children. The program seeks to counter the anti-immigrant sentiment on the rise in the United States and to amplify the voices of many living in this country who are marginalized because of their immigration status. It is also a potent and beautiful example of our dual mission to celebrate literature and defend free expression.

So on February 18, make sure to order your favorite meal and beverage from Busboys and Poets, and tune in for a special gathering of minds with young-undocumented authors!

Support your local businesses! Busboys and Poets offers a delicious menu. Browse the menu and order online by clicking here.
