Chicana author and scholar Dr. Norma Elia Cantú uses images and poetry to chronicle her experiences growing up on the US-Mexico borderlands. In addition to reading from her award-winning Canicula: Snapshots of a Girlhood en la Frontera, she'll read from her new book, Cabañuelas, and her forthcoming poetry collection, Meditación Fronteriza: Poems of Life, Love, and Labor.
The stories told in the Borderlands of Southern Colorado exhibit are getting richer. Join authors, artists, scholars, and activists from around the country this fall for the Borderlands of Southern Colorado lecture series as they deepen discussions an complicate narratives on various Borderlands topics. All talks are free and open to the public.
