Saturday, 13th September 1 to 2PM
Book reading and signing with author/poet, Isaac Chavarria
This collection of poetry revisits those uprooted and attempting to adjust to life in the United States, and walks into the lives of the barrio-colonia where canals, orange groves, and streets intersect. It settles in the mexclado of raza: anglos, tejanos, im migrants, chican@s, transients, y mas. Welcome to un topsy turvy poxo world, where the fl awed and perfect speak the same.
Isaac Chavarría is a proud pocho with an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Texas-Pan American. He enjoys assisting non-profit organizations in producing chapbooks for workshop participants. His publications are included in The Acentos Review and Rio Grande Review online, with a collection of poetry titled poxo forthcoming from Slough Press. Ultimately, he hopes the term pocho will represent a positive identity rather than a pejorative.
This event is free and open to the public.
