In Extremely Lightweight Guns: Poems, Nikki Moustaki explores femininity in contexts that grapple with violence, mental illness, loss, love, and relationships. She probes these themes through various provocative narratives, settings, and forms, from prose to diary-like entries. In her debut collection Tortillera: Poems, Caridad Moro-Gronlier not only applies the homophobic Spanish-language term for lesbians to herself, she owns it, drapes it over her shoulders and heralds her truth through candid, unflinching poems that address the queer experience of coming out while Cuban. Moderated by Richard Blanco, author of How to Love a Country.
