CityLit Press celebrates the launch of author Rafael Alvarez’s new collection of fiction, Basilio Boullosa Stars in the Fountain of Highlandtown.

The celebration includes 2017 Gordon Parks Foundation Fellow Devin Allen, founder of Through Their Eyes, a youth photography educational program, who will speak about the Time magazine photo that changed the trajectory of his career, and work and life after A Beautiful Ghetto. 2017 Guggenheim Fellow Deborah Rudacille is a science writer who tells stories about the ways in which science influences culture and culture informs science, the links between science and social justice movements, and the ways that science fuels cultural transformation. Her current project, funded by the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, is titled "The Family Disease: Alcoholism, Addiction and Inheritance." CityLit introduces singer, songwriter, guitarist Jahiti of Brown FISH to its stage. This session is moderated by WYPR’s Aaron Henkin.
