Come at Me, Libro

This fall Phoenix Public Library is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with ¡Celebramos!, a Valley-wide series of cultural events that explore the sights, sounds, and stories of Latin America. This four week program of community-based arts events will include La Cultura Cura: Writing and Storytelling, an evening of spoken word performances. Join the local Latin American literary group Los Hijos de La Llorona and author Stella Pope Duarte as they present a compilation of original shorts stories and poems. A native of south Phoenix, Duarte has published books including If I Die in Juárez, Fragile Night, and Let Their Spirits Dance.

La Cultura Cura takes place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 2, inside the meeting room at Palo Verde Library, 4402 North 51st Avenue. Admission is free and no registration is required. For more information, call 602-262-4636 or visit
