Latin American Brilliance
October 19, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
“One of the debut novels that most stood out this year in Latin America,” said the New York Times of Natalia García Freire’s This World Does Not Belong to Us. Claudia Castro Luna—an Academy of American Poets Poet Laureate fellow, Washington State Poet Laureate, and Seattle’s inaugural Civic Poet—joins us with Cipota under the Moon: a series of poems as an ode to the Salvadoran immigrant experience in the United States. Both speak to hope in unlikely places and celebrate those who choose, every day, to redefine home.
Join us for a dialogue between these writers (Natalia García Freire will join us online from Ecuador) exploring craft, overcoming challenges against all odds, and sharing what other exciting voices in Latin American literature we should be reading. Moderated by Carmen Rodríguez.
Date: Wednesday, October 19
