Reading: Alan Chazaro, Antonio López, and Leticia Hernández-Linares, with special guests Gala

Programmed by Raina J. Léon

The first in this series of readings celebrating the tenth anniversary of the influential journal The Acentos Review starts us off with a bang. Alan Chazaro’s chapbook Piñata Theory won the 2018 Hudson Prize. A Marshall scholar currently studying at Oxford, Antonio López has had work featured in PEN/America and elsewhere. The widely published Leticia Hernández-Linares is a lecturer at San Francisco State University and the author of Mucha Muchacha, Too Much Girl. Acoustic indie folk-pop trio Gala join the poets in performance.
