Junot Díaz Twitter Party POSTPONED

Dear friends,

In light of today’s bombings at the Boston Marathon, we have decided to postpone the Twitter party with Junot Díaz, who is in Boston. He is fine as are his family and loved ones, but the victims, survivors, and their loved ones remain in our hearts and prayers.

We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we settle on a new date.

With heavy hearts for our country,

~ Monica, Viviana, Lisa, and Carla

#L4LL April Twitter Party with Junot Díaz

It is with the greatest excitement that we announce our April Twitter party with our special guest, the critically-acclaimed and award-winning author and activist, Junot Díaz. For the first time, Díaz will engage with readers and fans in a Twitter party to talk about his writing, his advocacy work, and the importance of nurturing U.S. Latino literature and literacy.

Junot Díaz has achieved worldwide recognition and received several prestigious awards including the MacArthur Foundation’s “Genius” fellowship and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. He is the first Latino author to sit on the 20-member Pulitzer Prize board of jurors.

The Twitter party will take place on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. ET. We’ll keep you posted with more information and event details here on the L4LL website, as well as our FB page.

If you’d like to ask him a question in English or Spanish, post it on our FB page before the Junot Díaz Twitter party on Monday April 15. We’ll be selecting some of the best questions.

And you can follow the conversation using the #L4LL hashtag on Monday night, April 15th.

I’d also like to recognize Viviana Hurtado for all the work she has done to make this Twitter party a reality. ¡Bien hecho!

We hope to see you all there!
