Latino/a Poetry Now : Tucson, 4/25/13: photo gallery (1)

This morning our poets met with an undergraduate honors class that
had read and studied their work. The class is held at the Poetry Center itself. 
J. Michael Martínez and Roberto Tejada (pictured here) engaged in a wide-
ranging conversation that touched upon their poetics, the body,
flash mobs, and other tidbits of contemporary life...

Carmen Giménez Smith made it to Tucson by car, from Las Cruces,
just in time for lunch downtown at Penca.  

Photo of the photo shoot: Cybele Knowles took pictures
in the space beside the Poetry Center, following our
afternoon break.

Pre-dinner lounging and browsing at the Poetry Center
at the University of Arizona.
But before that, they had us all sign books from
their collection, including a number of our
limited edition chapbooks.
