In Conversation: Pablo Medina & Achy Obejas
Wednesday, November 17 @ 12:00 pm
In his collection The Foreigner’s Song: New and Selected Poems, Cuban-born American poet Pablo Medina reaches back to his six previous published collections and all the way to his first, published in 1975, adding 19 new works. His prose has a dreamlike quality in which familiarity and certainty surrender to strangeness. Achy Obejas’ Boomerang/Bumerán: Poetry/Poesía is a bilingual collection of lyrical poetry written in bold, mostly gender-free English and Spanish that addresses immigration, displacement, love, and activism. Moderated by poet Alexandra Lytton Regalado of Supporting Women Writers in Miami (SWWIM).
