One thought on “#ArtLitPhx: Bilingual Conversation and Reading with Dolores Dorantes”
This event sounds like a great opportunity for people to hear what Dolores Dorantes has to say. It would be great to view another person’s perspective on life and to get to know someone who is bilingual and how it helps when living amongst different cultures in America.
