Duende District, a collaborative pop-up bookstore for & by people of color, where all are welcome, has partnered with PEN/Faulkner for a new series, In Cultural Conversation. This recurring series features writers of color from all cultural backgrounds using literature to begin bridge-building conversations about the challenges all our communities face today.
