Last night Francisco Aragon brought his poetry to town, with a reading at Foster Auditorium. Francisco is the author of PUERTA DEL SOL, from Bilingual Review Press.
He is also the editor of THE WIND SHIFTS: NEW LATINO POETRY, perhaps the most far-reaching such anthology since Ray Gonzalez's AFTER AZTLAN.
One of the poems Francisco read was dedicated to Jack Spicer, one of the many subjects swirling around the table when we had lunch earlier in the day.
Francisco is on the staff of Notre Dame's Institute for Latino Studies, working out of their office in D.C. Check out Francisco's work with the Institute at the Letras Latinas blog site.
