LibroMobile presenta: El premio Modesta Ávila 

Es un gran honor anunciar a nuestro ganador del Premio Modesta Ávila y  orador principal en nuestro Aniversario del Festival de Artes Literarias LibroMobile en enero, todos los años desde que abrimos nuestra pequeña librería en 2018.

Elegimos este título de premio por muchas razones, pero principalmente porque Modesta Ávila ha sido pasada por alto en la historia, no solo como mexicoamericana sino también como mujer. A fines de la década de 1880, Modesta defendió a su familia y su tierra en contra del desarrollo del ferrocarril, y por eso fue etiquetada como una manifestante y una delincuente. Sin embargo, solo en las últimas dos décadas ha ganado reconocimiento y ahora más de nosotros volvemos a contar su historia.

¡Igualmente decisivos para liderar nuestra comunidad a través del empoderamiento cultural, el orgullo y la defensa literaria son nuestros galardonados anuales!
