Remembering Gloria: A Night of Poetry!
"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 10, 7:00 PM at the Palm View Branch Library (in McAllen, TX). Various people from the Valley will take a turn reading Anzaldúa’s poetry out loud. 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 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!"
