In the forefront of building the infrastructure to propel this literary and art journey is "El Festival del Libro/Festival of Books", a place-making, live, first-draft use of the printed word event featuring the literary & art communities to participate by networking, selling, marketing, and promoting their creations.
This annual bilingual literary & literature event highlights Latin@ poets, writers, authors, and photographers in East Harlem, NYS, other areas of the United States, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central & South America. La Fortaleza and El Festival welcome indigenous language speaking people as well. Though our primary focus are Latin Americans, we are not exclusive and recognize the value of other foreign languages writers and readers, including those with disabilities.
La Fortaleza achieves its mission on behalf of our literary and art community by offering the following services to writers, students, seniors. & youth included.
