The wonderful musician and the writer behind celebrated memoirs Just Kids, which won the National Book Award, presents an evening of poetry, prose, and acoustic music. She will be followed by the all-female, Latin Grammy–nominated group Mariachi Flor de Toloache underscores the cosmopolitan, only-in-New York vibe of the evening with their virtuosic ranchera interpretations of traditional Mexican songs, Latin dance tunes, jazz standards, and pop hits, sung in both English and Spanish.
