“I didn’t read books by Dominican authors until I was in my 20s, and it’s a shame because I feel that if I had read books with characters I could identify with, I would have felt affirmed and validated in this world. With Lil’ Dominican Readers we hope to create a similar impact in the lives of your child. May this collection of books inspire them to continue reading our stories.” - ANGELA ABREU, Founder & Creative Director of Dominican Writers Association

In 2015, feeling dismissed as a Dominican American writer in many literary spaces, Angela Abreu founded Dominican Writers Association, a non-profit organization and platform dedicated to supporting and promoting the works by creative writers of Dominican descent in the genres of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Their mission is to provide writers and community members with the tools and resources to continue developing their craft and reach the heights of the literary canon.
