Analicia Sotelo: A Poetry Reading at the San José Museum of Art
Start Date: 2/7/2019Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 2/7/2019End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:
The Center for Literary Arts is proud to present Analicia Sotelo: A Poetry Reading at the San José Museum of Art on February 7 at 7pm.

Winner of the inaugural Jake Adam York Prize, Analicia Sotelo’s debut collection of poems is a vivid portrait of the artist as a young woman. In Virgin, Sotelo walks the line between autobiography and mythmaking, offering up identities like dishes at a feast. These poems devour and complicate tropes of femininity—of naiveté, of careless abandon—before sharply exploring the intelligence and fortitude of women, how “far & wide, / how dark & deep / this frigid female mind can go.” At every step, Sotelo’s poems seduce with history, folklore, and sensory detail—grilled meat, golden habañeros, and burnt sugar—before delivering cleareyed and eviscerating insights into power, deceit, relationships, and ourselves. Blistering and gorgeous, Virgin is an audacious act of imaginative self-mythology from one of our most promising young poets.

This event is open to the public. Guests are invited to peruse the galleries, enjoy live poetry performances by local poets, and have their own personalized poem written by Center for Literary Arts Poetry Buskers.
