On October 28 to 29, our friends at Letras Latinas, the literary initiative of the University of Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies, in collaboration with the university’s creative writing program, presents Angels of the Americlypse, a conference featuring Latino poets Rosa Alcalá, Carmen Giménez Smith, Roberto Tejada, and Rodrigo Toscano. The event takes its title from Angels of the Americlypse: An Anthology of New Latin@ Writing, published in 2014 by Counterpath Press and edited by Smith and John Chávez.

As part of this two-day conference, the poets will participate in oral history video interviews, public conversations, and roundtable discussions. Then, on October 28 at 7:30 p.m., Alcalá, Giménez Smith, Tejada, and Toscano will give a collaborative performance of their work that will be live-streamed for a national audience. Be sure to tune in!
