Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series: Cardboard House Press/Cartonera Collective: Giancarlo Huapaya, Omar Pimienta, José Antonio Villarán

The Poetry Center's Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series continues in its second year, as we welcome Giancarlo Huapaya, Omar Pimienta, and José Antonio Villarán—all three poets involved in the outstanding literary small publisher Cardboard House Press, dedicated to work in translation from Latin America and Spain, and its offshoot, Cartonera Collective, "a team of book makers devoted to the production of bilingual book art from Latin American authors." We're featuring three events: Thursday November 7 at The Poetry Center, poets Huapaya, Pimienta, and Villarán will read their work and engage in conversation with the audience. Cartonera Collective, with members in town from Phoenix, AZ, will conduct a free bookmaking workshop at Alley Cat Books in the Mission, Friday afternoon November 8. And Friday evening the poets will be reading and conversing at The Green Arcade, on Market at Gough, in San Francisco. All events are free and open to the public (though register for the workshop, space is limited). This event at The Poetry Center is co-sponsored with Latina/Latino Studies, SF State. Please join us!
