Aurora has been an incredible support to Latino authors for years. Now’s our chance to reciprocate. Let’s make this space happen together; the children of East Harlem deserve it!

May there be many more “casas azules” full of ideas and the essence of your love for books, Aurora.

Sending you wishes for success, Aurora. You’ve been working tirelessly towards this and I will be so happy to see your dream come to fruition. Your Casa Azul will be a home for many of us writers; I humbly give you this little brick. ;)
