Jennifer Givhan at Bookworks

Thursday, April 4 at 6:00pm – Jennifer Givhan presents her latest poetry collection Rosa’s Einstein at Albuquerque’s Bookworks.  Using details both from Einstein’s known life and from quantum physics, poet Jennifer Givhan imagines Lieserl, the daughter Albert Einstein and his wife Mileva allegedly gave up for adoption at birth, in a circus-like landscape of childhood trauma and survival, guided by Rosa and her sister Nieve. Rosa’s Einstein is a Latinx retelling of the Brothers Grimm’s Snow-White and Rose-Red, reevaluating border, identity, and immigration narratives through the unlikely amalgamation of physics and fairy tale.

Givhan will be joined by Albuquerque’s Poet Laureate Michelle Otero.
