Jacqueline Balderrama panel with Paisley Rekdal and Natasha Sajé
March 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm UTC+0
Please come join us for an intimate conversation with three writers as they consider when and how to highlight intersections of identity in their literary art. In this panel discussion, “Necessary Risks: A Conversation about Race and Representation in Art,” Utah Poet Laureate Paisley Rekdal will reflect on her latest book, Appropriate: A Provocation, a work that considers the thorny issues around cultural appropriation. She will be joined by poet and memoirist Natasha Sajé, whose book, Terroir, focuses on the immigrant experience in relation to ideas of place, and Jacqueline Balderrama, poet and author of Now In Color, a multigenerational exploration of the Mexican-American experience. The conversation promises to be urgent, complex, and grounded in the way the literary arts create unique spaces for such investigations. Moderated by Niyonta Chowdhury. Register at link below.
