Into the Beautiful North NEA: Big Read El Paso

Based on the novel by Luis Alberto-Urrea

Written by Karen Zacarias


The UTEP Department of Theatre and Dance is a recipient of a grant of $15,000 to host the NEA Big Read in El Paso. A national initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book.

Inspired by the movie The Maginificent Seven, Nayeli leaves with her best friends to sneak into the US to bring seven Magnificent Mexican Men to defend their town from drug dealers. The epic journey from Sinaloa, Mexico- to- San Diego and finally to Kankakee Illinois, is hilarious, real and heartwarming.
