MAKE Literary Productions is proud to present the sixth annual Lit & Luz Festival of Language, Literature, and Art October 12-19, 2019, at venues throughout Chicago.

This year’s festival theme, “Movement,” asks the participants and audience to consider migration, social movements, and bodies in motion.

The festival features more than a dozen free, bilingual events, including conversations, film screenings, live storytelling, and much more. Award-winning Mexican American author Luis Alberto Urrea will present the festival’s Lit & Luz Keynote Address with Luis Alberto Urrea at the Chicago Cultural Center on Sunday, October 13 at 3 PM. The festival’s closing event is on Saturday, October 19, when the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago partners to present the Live Magazine Show from 6-8pm. The “Live Magazine Show” is a ticketed program in which paired Mexico- and US-based participants debut their multimedia creative collaborations.
