Kawsay - La llama de selva: María Vázquez Valdez

Join the Operating System for a bilingual poetry event in celebration of the release of the dual-language translation of María Vázquez Valdez’s Kawsay - La llama de selva / Kawsay - The flame of the jungle. Vázquez Valdez will be joined by the translator of the volume, renowned poet Margaret Randall, as well as a host of incredible bilingual poet-translators representing Belladonna* and Ugly Duckling Presse! We’re thrilled to have Urayoán Noel, Elizabeth Zuba, Mónica de la Torre, and Lila Zemborain joining us for this very special evening.
Kawsay is Vázquez Valdez’s poetic account of her experience in Peru working with the Shipibo indigenous community, and features drawings by Chizuko Osato.
