10th Anniversary Celebration of
Daughters of the Stone

On Thursday, November 21, 2019, author Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa ended a year-long series of readings celebrating the publication of the 10th Anniversary Trade Paperback edition of Daughters of the Stone. The culminating event took place at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, an intimate gathering which included special guests: 

"My work is all about the past, all about our elders and ancestors who have always held story, our story told fully and with dignity, in our own words. My work is all about building a bridge between what was, what is, and what can be. My ultimate goal is to help our younger generations examine the past so they have the tools to build for the future. So it all boils down to making connections, about crossing bridges, to find strength in the past so that we ensure that we will not only survive, but that we will also thrive.  My three guest readers will help take us on a journey of self-discovery. These are the many faces of who we are and who we have been."
