Local faves Quenton Baker, Jane Wong, and Michelle Peñaloza will read their poetry in celebration of banana [ ], an AWP Donald Hall Prize-winning book by Paul Hlava Ceballos that digs into the history of bananas in Latin America. (It's a poetic reflection on "the extractive relationship the U.S. has with the Americas," told through found texts, migrant portraits, and the author's own memories.) Pop by for plantains and sweet snacks from Garzón: Latinx Street Food and snag books for sale from Open Books: A Poem Emporium.
