Join us at the Grand Avenue library for an afternoon reading by five poets published in Poetry in Flight/Poesia en vuelo: Anthology in Celebration of El Tecolote. Copies will be available for purchase. The anthology, edited by the late Francisco X. Alarcon, Eva Martinez and Nina Serrano with assistance by Harold Terezon, features 69 insightful contemporary poems in Spanish, English and Spanglish by 56 fiery poets speaking with a lyrical passion on equality, inclusion, freedom, justice, gender identity, gentrification and more. Former United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera penned the foreword, which celebrates the literary legacy of the community-based bilingual newspaper, El Tecolote, which produced a quarterly literary supplement in the 1980s as a publishing space for Latino writers.
