"After attending last years U.S./México Exchange Program I can honestly say this is one of the premiere programs of its kind in the country. The Lark should be applauded for its commitment to bringing all of us an artistic night to remember. I was blown away by the quality of writing and collaboration that took place that night and look forward to the coming years of this exchange. It gives me hope!
