Online Program: Poets House Presents: Vincent Toro
Jun 5, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 12:15 pm
Vincent Toro reads from his new book “Tertulia” (Penguin Random House, 2020) from Fort Lee, NJ.
Puerto Rican poet Vincent Toro’s new collection takes the Latin American idea of an artistic social gathering (the “tertulia”) and revises it for the Latinx context in the United States. The collection examines immigration, economics, colonialism and race thru the imagery of music, visual art, and history. Toro draws from his own social justice work in various U.S. cities to create a kaleidoscopic vision of the connections between the personal and the political, the local and the global.
