The lineup starts off with poet and human rights Sara Campos. Campos will also serve as emcee of the event, introducing poet Alan Chazaro, author Christine Granados, and musician Alyssa Granados. Christine Granados (pictured) will read from and discuss her latest book, Fight Like a Man and Other Stories We Tell Our Children, a novella and short stories about strong Mexican American women who live along the border. Chazaro, who is also a high school teacher, has written poetry that has appeared or is forthcoming in Iron Horse Review, Huizache, BorderSenses, Pilgrimage Magazine, and other publications. Alyssa Granados, whose diverse catalog comes from a range of influences spanning from folk to dub, will perform from original and brand new acoustic songs between readings.
