Jingletown Poetry Anniversary Reading
Join Harold Terezón, educator, poet, and our host for a great lineup of local poets. Terezon was also one of the featured poets published recently by Tia Chucha Press in the anthology The Wandering Song: Central American Writing in the US. It features work that captures the complexity of a rapidly growing community that shares certain experiences with other Latino groups, but also offers its own unique narrative. This is the first-ever comprehensive literary survey of the Central American diaspora by a U.S. publisher.
Refreshments will be provided.
