TO WRITE MIAMI : A Reading With Legna Rodríguez Iglesias

About The To Write Miami series:
Writers who choose a city as their muse give voice to both a place and a people. Part scribe, part dreamer, they issue facts along with fantasies, leaving behind a history of the intangible realities of urban life—of a people's heartbreak and of their joy, of their loss and of their growth. The series To Write Miami brings nine beloved Miami writers to Soya & Pomodoro restaurant over eight nights to explore how stories emerge from the raw sights and sounds of the city they love. The series demonstrates how writers pay homage to Miami and how, in turn, Miami feeds their creativity. The innovative readings will include performative elements, reflections on the city that nurtures and inspires, and conversations on the writing process that often begins before words are even placed on the page.
