Reading

Sandra Cisneros and translator Liliana Valenzuela read from Cisneros' Woman Without Shame (2022) and Valenzuela's Spanish-language translation, Mujer sin vergüenza (2022), selecting poems that consider womanhood, aging, and freedom as a woman. Valenzuela also reads poems of her own from Codex of Journeys: Bendito camino (2012) and Codex of Love: Bendita ternura (2020), which also consider womanhood, desire, and the act of looking.

Reading

Saretta Morgan reads extensively from Alt-Nature (2024), her first full-length collection. Rooted in southern Arizona, her poems consider the militarization of the US-Mexico border and the legacies of colonialism in American culture.
