Luis Alberto Urrea

Joe Mazza/Brave-Lux

Mr. Urrea is sponsored by the Marshall Foundation

Luis Urrea is a Tucson Festival of Books favorite! Hailed by NPR as a "literary badass" and a "master storyteller with a rock and roll heart," Luis Alberto Urrea is a prolific and acclaimed writer who uses his dual-culture life experiences to explore greater themes of love, loss and triumph.

A 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction and member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame, Urrea is the critically acclaimed and best-selling author of 16 books -- winning numerous awards for his poetry, fiction and essays. Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and American mother, Urrea is most recognized as a border writer, though he says, "I am more interested in bridges, not borders."

His new book, "House of Broken Angles," will release festival weekend!
