NOW IN COLOR: Book Launch & Celebration
November 2 @ 8:30 pm - 9:45 pm ESTFree
Celebrate Día de los Muertos and the publication of Jacqueline Balderrama’s first full-length collection, Now in Color, winner of the 2020 Perugia Press Prize! This event features readings by Balderrama and special guests: poets Sally Ball (author of Hold Sway), Alberto Ríos (Arizona’s inaugural poet laureate), and Juan Felipe Herrera (former US Poet Laureate). Come listen in to poetry in community around this important new book that uses ekphrasis, portraiture, and family mythos to deepen our understanding of hybrid identities and call attention to those impacted by tensions along the U.S.-Mexico border.
This event is free and open to all, but registration is required via Zoom at the link below.
