Poetic Politics 

Francisco X. Alarcon

Francisco X. Alarcon

On Saturday, March 12, Tucson poets Enrique Garcia Naranjo, Odilia Galvan Rodriguez and our own managing editor Mari Herreras will honor the activist work of Francisco X. Alarcon. His poem, "For the Capital Nine/Para Los Nueve del Capitolio," sheds light on the nine students who physically chained themselves to the Arizona State Capitol when they protested SB 1070 back in 2010. Go to 1209 E. University Blvd., Rm. 104 at 1 p.m. for an afternoon of social and poetic justice. For more info on this and other Festival of Books events, go to www.tucsonfestivalofbooks.org
