I'm very excited to be invited to participate in Uptown Lit: A Festival of Readers and Writers in conjunction with Word Up bookstore, the impressive, never say die, all-volunteer bookstore in Washington Heights this October 19, 2013. The festival is being sponsored by the NY-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia University Medical Center Reach Out and Read program. I'll be answering questions about The Color of My Words and Flowers in the Sky in the Adolescent Program portion of the event. YEAH! I will also definitely be stopping for some tostones and my other fave Dominican dishes. More info to come soon. Hope to see you there.
