Luis Alberto Urrea is a prolific and acclaimed writer who uses his life experiences to explore themes of love, loss, and triumph.

A 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction and a Guggenheim fellow, Urrea is the author of 19 books, winning numerous awards for his poetry, fiction, and essays.
Urrea's newest book, Good Night, Irene, takes as inspiration his mother's own Red Cross Club Mobile service during World War II. With its affecting and uplifting portrait of friendship and valor in harrowing circumstances, the novel powerfully demonstrates Urrea's gifts as a storyteller.
The author lives with his family in Naperville, IL, where he is a distinguished professor of creative writing at the University of Illinois--Chicago.
