Borrowed Tongue: New Writings From Filipinx and Latinx Poets
Language, commerce and colonial history once connected the world’s original global cities of Manila, Madrid and Mexico City. This reading explores how poets in the Filipinx and Latinx diasporas refigure identity and rediscover kinship in a multicultural and postcolonial world.
Featuring poets Josiah Luis Alderete, Aileen Cassinetto, Alice De Parres, Keana Aguilar Labra, Kevin Madrigal Galindo.
This event is proudly sponsored by the Filipino American Center at the San Francisco Public Library.
