This evening will be a celebration of the book “1ra Antologia de la Poesia Oregoniana” by the Instituto de Cultura Oregoniana. This book emerges from the First Contest of Oregonian Poetry in Spanish. Along with the winning works, a careful selection of the work of the most representative Hispanic poets in Oregon is presented. “Our Hispanic essence and our surrounding reality are anchored to the fact that we are Spanish speakers in an Anglo-Saxon world. We are Spanish speakers of diverse origins and with unique cultural nuances united by our mother tongue: Spanish. We live a thriving and fascinating reality… We can say that there is in Oregon a poetic vein in Spanish language that cries for being heard.”
Featured reader begins at 7:00 and the open mic will directly follow. Our hosts, the Ike Box, feature a wide variety of beverages and snack options!
The Ike Box is located at 229 Cottage St NE in Salem, at the intersection of Chemawa and Cottage.
