Carmen Giménez Poetry Reading

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join us for a virtual celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with poet Carmen Giménez. Her work has been described as “offer[ing] readers a blazing way forward into an as yet unmade world…investigat[ing] the precariousness of personhood in lines that excoriate and sanctify…turn[ing] the increasingly pressing urge to cry out into a dream of rebellion—against compromise, against inertia, against self-delusion, and against the ways the media dream up our complacency in an America that depends on it.”


About the speaker:

Carmen Giménez is the author of numerous poetry collections, including Milk and Filth, a finalist for the NBCC Award in Poetry and Be Recorder (Graywolf Press, 2019), which was a finalist for the 2019 National Book Award in Poetry, the PEN Open Book Award, the Audre Lorde Award for Lesbian Poetry, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. She was awarded the Academy of American Poets Fellowship Prize in 2020. A 2019 Guggenheim fellow, she served as the publisher of Noemi Press for twenty years. She is Publisher and Executive Director of Graywolf Press.
