Palabra Pura: Greater Than The Sum Of Parts

February 19, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


In this month’s bilingual reading series, previous reader Teresa Vázquez returns as curator to explore the complications of identity.

She writes, “As Latin@s born and bred in the U.S., our sense of identity, culture, mother tongue and family are often complicated and contradictory. We are not a uniform group and sometimes don’t play well with others – even with our own gente. Yet on our life’s journey, aided by our writing, we find the integrity as individuals to stand firmly in self-definition, unafraid to acknowledge those aspects of ourselves that make our antepasados shudder with aversion.”
