Tonight's event will be held as scheduled in Crimi Auditorium.
The story of Luis Alberto Urrea is one of transformation: from his beginnings
on a dirt street in Tijuana to Pulitzer Prize finalist and beloved storyteller.
He uses these dual-culture life experiences in his writings to explore greater
themes of love, loss and triumph. Urrea is a professor of creative writing at
the University of Illinois-Chicago. Some of his books have been incorporated
into courses at Aurora University, eliciting student discussion about borders,
immigration and the search for belonging.
