Ciento--Poemas de Amor

Ciento – Poemas de Amor:

A Love Fest With Lorna Dee Cervantes

Lorna Dee Cervantes, a fifth-generation Californian of Mexican and Native American (Chumash) heritage, is originally from San José, California. She has been published in over 200 anthologies. Emplumada (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1981) was the first of many award-winning publications, for which Cervantes received the American Book Award, the Patterson and the Balcones Prize for best Books of Poetry, the Latino Literature Award, and two Pushcart Prizes.

With a strong affinity for San Antonio, Cervantes has chosen the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center to unveil her most recent work, which will be published by Wings Press: Ciento: 100 100-Word Love Poems.

Come celebrate love, as you listen to Lorna Dee Cervantes present her new book.
