This author meet + greet will feature two incredible authors: John Paul Jaramillo and Amy Sayre Baptisa. Monday evening 6pm-8pm at Maeva’s Coffee. Free drip coffee will be provided for guests of this event.

John Paul Jaramillo, author of “The House of Order” and “Little Mocos”, was named Int’l Latino Book Award Finalist for both of his story collections. Named in the “Top 10 New Latino Authors to Read” by Latino Boom, his works are a profound narrative of the Latino community. Jaramillo will be sharing a reading from his most recent short story collection, “Little Mocos” and will be available after for Q&A.

Amy Sayre Baptista’s work has appeared in countless publications. She has been awarded a SAFTA fellowship, a CantoMundo Poetry Fellowship, and a scholarship to participate at the Disquiet Literary Festival in Lisbon, Portgual. Her work is written both in English and Portuguese and often explores the nature of immigration and immigrant communities. Baptista will be sharing work from her September 2018 release “Primitivity” and will be available for Q&A following.

We hope you will join us to celebrate these two amazing artists and share in a cup of coffee!
