Radio Tierra will be broadcasting a reading of this year’s selection, “Into the Beautiful North” (Rumbo al Hermoso Norte) by Luis Urrea. The book will be read in both English and Spanish weekly on Fridays from 8-9 p.m. by DJs Alejandro Cano and Gale Arnold. The show will continue until the book has been finished.
