Palabra Pura & Sergio Troncoso – Chicago

Guild Literary Complex news
We look at literary culture and ask - "What's missing?"

Last Chicago Events of 2011
Next week is the last Palabra Pura of the year, featuring Luis Humberto Valadez and Tim Z. Herna'ndez in a poetry face-off. (Fortunately they're old friends, so any blood-letting will be in good fun.) If you haven't heard Luis or Tim live, it's one of the most unique experiences you'll have with poetry. For example, check out Luis in action.

Palabra Pura: Luis Humberto Valadez & Tim Z. Herna'ndez

at La Bruquena restaurant (upstairs), 2726 W. Division, Chicago

Then the next night in Hyde Park, we're presenting the contemplative fiction and non-fiction of Sergio Troncoso. He'll be reading from his new books From This Wicked Patch of Dust (University of Arizona Press) -- a novel about the Martinez family, who struggles to stay together despite cultural clashes, different religions, and contemporary politics across the U.S.-Mexico border -- and Crossing Borders: Personal Essays. Learn more about Troncoso here.
