Another Casa Libre Edge Series Worth Your Time

Posted By on Wed, May 15, 2013 at 3:00 PM

The best poetry treat in town is waiting for you at 7:30 tonight—Wednesday, May 15—at Casa Libre, 228 N. Fourth Ave. And it will just set you back $5.

Carmen Calatayud, author of In the Company of Spirits, is back in Arizona from Washington, DC, to read from her book of poetry that reflects images of the border, Tucson, and Sonora. Her work was chosen by poets Pamela Uschuk and William Pitt Root for Press 53’s Silver Concho Poetry Series. The book was chosen as a runner-up for the Walt Whitman Award by the Academy of American Poets.

The Range also loves Calatayud's her work as a moderator for Poets Responding to SB1070. Her work and the work of other poets who have contributed to Poets Responding (including this Range writer) will be published in 2014 in Poetry of Resistance: A Multicultural Response to Arizona SB 1070 and Other Xenophobic Laws (University of Arizona Press).

Calatayud will be joined by members of the Tucson Youth Poetry Slam and a performance by the winners of the 2013 Tucson Youth Poetry Slam All-City Championship held April 20 at the University of Arizona Poetry Center. Nic Varela and Dani Borg-James will also be there to perform excerpts from "I Can't Sing You To Sleep Anymore," a dance choreographed by Nic about unexpectedly dealing with onset depression.
