Casandra López Book Release Event at Hugo House

Friday, February 22, 2019 – Seattle’s Hugo House hosts Casandra López for the book release event for her debut collection Brother BulletSpeaking to both a personal and collective loss, in Brother Bullet Casandra López confronts her relationships with violence, grief, trauma, guilt, and, ultimately, survival. Revisiting the memory and lasting consequences of her brother’s murder, López traces the course of the bullet—its trajectory, impact, wreckage—in poems that are paralyzing and raw with emotion, yet tender and alive in revelations of light.

Joining López on stage will be Kathleen Alcala and Isabel Quintero.
