Stay tuned for a variety of dynamic virtual events throughout the fall revolving around the release of Resistencia.
Resistencia Feminista: Contemporary Mexican Poetry.
Red Poppy and Utah Humanities are excited to host a powerful afternoon featuring five female Mexican poets spanning several generations.
“What does resistance mean to you in your experience of our current moment? What do you see as the role of poetry within Mexico’s current social movements?”
In what promises to be a stimulating dialogue, the poets will respond to these questions while also reading their celebrated verse. Via Zoom, 3 PM MST.
