The Academy of American Poets and the University of Arizona Press presented a reading and book release celebration with Gloria Muñoz on Wednesday, April 14.
Winner of the Ambroggio Prize, Muñoz read from Danzirly, a striking bilingual poetry collection that fiercely examines the nuances of the American Dream for Latinx people in the United States. The evening included the poet’s father Al Muñoz, who read several of the Spanish versions of the English translations his daughter read.
To say this was a special event is understated, but thrilled to offer this opportunity to watch the poetry magic as often as possible.
