Rigoberto González Lectures at the Library of Congress

By Harriet Staff


We’ll close out the day by pointing you over to the University of Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies’s Letras Latinas blog for this lecture by Rigoberto González, “Latino Poetry: Pivotal Voices, Era of Transition,” presented at the Library of Congress this past April.

González’s lecture references a number of poets, but hones in on six: Eduardo. C. Corral, J. Michael Martínez, David Tomás Martínez, Carmen Gimenez Smith, Laurie Ann Guerrero, and Cynthia Cruz. Among the more established voices he references are the late José Montoya, to whom lecture is dedicated, Francisco X. Alarcón, Pat Mora, raulsalinas, and Sandra Cisneros.

Head over to LL now to check it out!
