    Saturday September 15, 2018 / 12 – 1:30 pm

    Nevada Humanities presents the Nevada Humanities Literary Crawl Keynote Event, featuring keynote speaker, Gabby Rivera.

Come listen to the author of Juliet Takes a Breath and Marvel Comics’ AMERICA as she presents “Inspiring Radical Creativity.” There will be a question and answer session following the presentation, hosted by Felicia Perez. A book signing will follow the program. Gabby Rivera is the keynote speaker for the fifth annual Nevada Humanities Literary Crawl, which takes place on Saturday, September 15, throughout the California Avenue corridor.
