The Poetry Project


Dolores Dorantes with Robin Myers & Raquel Salas Rivera

Dolores Dorantes and Raquel Salas Rivera write with ferocious beauty, using language with all the strength of its transformative potential to invoke and enact a world rewritten, literally decolonized, returned to life, free. Please join us to celebrate Rivera’s latest book, Antes Que Isla Es Volcán, and Dorantes’s Copy, translated by Robin Myers, who will also join us to read.

Featuring a guest introduction by Genji Amino
