Elizabeth Acevedo and JoAnn Balingit - Ink Knows No Borders

  • Politics and Prose at The Wharf 70 District Square SW Washington, DC 20024 (map)

Event Details

Explore this collection of varied, exuberant, and intense poems by compelling contemporary voices as they share their experiences of being first- and second-generation immigrants and refugees. Poets address homesickness, racism, social exclusion, and questions of identity. Additionally, they explore the joy that emerges from discovering a new place, a new community, and a new sense of self.

Join Politics and Prose for an evening celebrating these stories with National Book Award winner Elizabeth Acevedo and former Delaware Poet Laureate JoAnn Balingit in conversation with the book’s editor, Patrice Vecchione.

Ages 14 and up.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
