ACENTOS: A Gathering and Celebration of Latino and Latina Poets

The week of AWP is shaping up to be a busy one for yours truly and for Acentos.

This particular reading was a real challenge to put together (more so than I thought it would be), so I'm particularly happy it's going to happen...and I'm particularly nervous about hosting it. But it's a great chance to put faces to voices I've had on my radar screen for a while, and to celebrate Latinos and Latinas doing their thing in American letters.

If you're in New York on February 1st, come down and check it out.

Much more to come in the next week...stay glued!

Very much looking forward to attending. Hopefully I won't get lost! yay! Seriously, I'll make a point to find it. Hopefully I'll see you at AWP.
