On Sunday, October 19th, Latina 50 Plus hosted its first networking event, Café Fuerté Mujeres Fuerté Event: Telling Our Stories at East Harlem Café in East Harlem NYC. Our featured was Theresa Varela, author of Covering the Sun with my Hand. Theresa gave a wonderful talk on how it felt to be publish as a Latina a50 Plus. After her presentation, invited guests were given the opportunity to share a personal story at the Open Mic. The stories shared were ones that gave insight as to how they overcame challenges throughout their lives. This was a well received event and others are being planned for the future. We hope that you will join us. In the meantime, please enjoy these photos from that day. This event was in partnership with AARP Latino.
