Danzirly: A Reading with Gloria Muñoz

The American Academy of Poets and the University of Arizona Press present a reading and book release celebration with Gloria Muñoz.

Winner of the 2019 Ambroggio Prize of the Academy of American Poets, Danzirly is an unforgettable reckoning of the grief and beauty that pulses through twenty-first-century America.

Danzirly is a striking bilingual poetry collection that fiercely examines the nuances of the American Dream for Latinx people in the United States. With a backdrop of stringent immigration policies, the #MeToo movement, and the increasingly tangible threat of climate change, this collection considers multigenerational Latinx identities in a rapidly changing country and world. Through the author’s Colombian American lens, the poems explore the intersections of culture, gender, history, and intergenerational grief.

Let's celebrate National Poetry Month and this beautiful new poetry collection! This online reading event is part of our Spring 2021 Event Series on Wednesday, April 14.

This event is free via Zoom, but registration is required.
