After eight long years away from Chicago, on Friday October 28th (tomorrow!), award winning and beloved poet Martín Espada will be hosted by the Guild Literary Complex as he reads from his recently released book, Visas To Those Who Have Failed (W.W. Norton), and from he October 2016 re-release of his award winning work, Zapata’s Disciple.
The event takes place at Teatro Urbano (2620 West Division Street, Humboldt Park) from 7:00-9:00 PM. There is a $5.00 suggested donation.
Co-hosted by the Puerto Rican Cultural Center, Mr. Espada will be hosted by the Guild Literary Complex, Teatro Urbano, and poet Edurado Arocho for a night of poetry, questions and answers, conversation and book signings. Mr. Arocho will be moderating the Q&A portion of the evening, so be sure to come with thoughtful questions for the poets.
