Litro Magazine & Restless Books Present Breaking Borders: Litro Magazine World Series—Latin America Edition Launch and Benefit.
We’re living in a time when open borders have come under threat. Thankfully, great literature stands in opposition to dividing lines, by building connections across cultures, languages, and identities. Join London literary magazine Litro, Brooklyn non-profit publisher Restless Books, and a continent-spanning array of writers, artists, actors, dancers and musicians as we celebrate the defiance of borders and the launch of Litro’s World Series—Latin America edition, with an unforgettable evening of Latin American food, drinks from Estrella Jalisco and Brooklyn Gin, music, and culture at the East Village Mexican restaurant La Palapa. Plus, there will be an unforgettable after-party with a DJ and dancing sponsored by Herradura tequila!
