Remembering Gloria: A Night of Poetry!

Looking forward to this important event to honor Gloria Anzaldúa in the Valley thanks to community activists and the Palmview branch library.

Remembering Gloria: A Night of Poetry!

McAllen, TX

We invite the public to join us in a celebration of Gloria Anzaldúa’s legacy, as we present an evening of her poetry on Thursday, April 26, 7:00 PM at the Palm View Branch Library. Various people from the Valley will take a turn reading Anzaldúa’s poetry out loud. A member of the Anzaldúa family will attend in her honor. Afterward, share your thoughts on Anzaldúa during a reception with light refreshment.

Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa was born in the Rio Grande Valley in 1942, attended Pan American University (currently UTPA) and became a major influence in redefining Chicano/a identity and language. Although she left behind an internationally acclaimed legacy, including books of poetry, essays, and fiction, she has been neglected in her own backyard – the Rio Grande Valley.

This event is free. Bring your family and friends and find out about the Rio Grande Valley’s secret treasure!
