Poets Unite Event

Letras Latinas, the literary initiative at the University of Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies (ILS)—in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery and the Library of Congress’ Hispanic Division and Poetry & Literature Center—is pleased to present “Poets Unite!,” featuring U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, alongside poets Diana Garcia and Arlene Biala.

The poets will read work that responds to, “One Life: Dolores Huerta,” currently on display through May 15. “The themes of labor, migration, and cultural affirmation that are at the heart of the farm workers movement and this show resonate with the poetry of Herrera, García, and Biala. We are honored to have them respond to this exhibition,” said Taina Caragol of the National Portrait Gallery, who conceived of, and curated the exhibit.
