Discussion 3:
«Across a Hundred Mountains» (2006) by Reyna Grande
Hosted by Solid State Books

Throughout the 2018/19 season, Washington Performing Arts is collaborating with arts, cultural heritage, education, and literary partners throughout D.C. to facilitate a multi-disciplinary dialogue around the important contributions and experiences of Latinx immigrants in the United States. Musical performances, visual art displays, panel discussions, education programs, and a book discussion series together showcase the wide range of journeys of identity and place experienced by our Latinx neighbors.

Washington Performing Arts and literary partners throughout the city co-present a series of book discussions, hosted by Lupita Quino—better known as “Lupita Reads”—a Mexican immigrant and the co-founder and co-moderator for LIT on H St Book Club, hosted at Solid State Books. She is a passionate reader active in both the local and online book communities, and the series will explore recent fiction and non-fiction works by Luis Alberto Urrea, Francisco Cantú, and Reyna Grande that share a wide range of perspectives on migration across the U.S.–Mexico border.
