Nuestra Poesía: An Evening of Poetry with Alberto Ríos

1 Apr

Join us for an evening with Arizona Poet Laureate Alberto Ríos. Ríos will share some of his work and discuss the role that oral history plays in his writing. A native of Nogales, Arizona, Ríos writes about life along the U.S. and Mexico border, blending the personal with the political in a way that makes us see both in a new light.

Reception at 7pm followed by the reading at 7:30pm at the University of Arizona Poetry Center at Helen and Vine.

For more information and to RSVP, please contact the Arizona Historical Society Archives at: 520-617-1157 or

This event is a partnership between the Arizona Historical Society, the University of Arizona College of Humanities, the Spanish and Portuguese Department, and the Gender and Women’s Studies Department, and the last event of the Nuestro Tucson: The Move Towards Latina/o Civil Rights series.

This event and all the events in the Nuestro Tucson series are made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
