Palabra Pura: Calling Home

September 17, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The monthly bilingual reading series in September features Ana Castillo and Paul Martinez Pompa and is curated by Cristina Correa. The event is hosted and co-presented by the Poetry Foundation.

States Correa, “Across generations, Latino writers and their constellation of experiences and creative identities have found a home in Chicago. For many, home is a constant migration between places and memories. For others, home is a space in which their productions are collected and honored: museums, bookcases, stages. Home is often a multi-faceted location, both physical and spiritual, that occurs when we can recognize ourselves in it.

It is a place that facilitates growth and exchange. As a powerhouse of intellectual honesty in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, Chicago-born and raised Ana Castillo provides the illuminating force for this conversation with home. Her fearless cultural and linguistic presence has provided a source of home for other writers interested in maintaining honest and critical dialogue with the places they come from.”
