Event description
Celebrated poet Urayoán Noel will read from his new collection, joined by Camino del Sol series editor Rigoberto González

About this Event

Transversal, Urayoán Noel's newest poetry collection, seeks to disrupt standard English and Spanish, and it celebrates the nonequivalence between languages. Inspired by Caribbean poet and philosopher Édouard Glissant, the collection celebrates Caribbean practices of creolization as maximalist, people-centered, affect-loaded responses to the top-down violence of austerity politics. This groundbreaking, modular approach to poetic translation opens up alternative ways of reading in any language.

Transversal is part of the critically acclaimed Camino del Sol series, a literary series published by the University of Arizona Press to spotlight poetry, fiction, and essays from both emerging and established voices in Latinx literature.

Noel will read, and be joined in conversation with Camino del Sol series editor Rigoberto González on Wednesday, March 17, 6:30 p.m. EST, or 4:30 p.m. MST

This online event is free, but registration is required.
