Join us as UWM Professor of English and 2010-2012 Milwaukee Poet Laureate, Brenda Cárdenas, leads a discussion on the work of poet and professor Craig Santos Perez. Cárdenas will be joined by Franklin Cline, poet and PhD candidate at UWM. Cárdenas and Cline will lead an informal discussion of Craig Santos Perez’s writing ahead of his visit to Milwaukee this weekend!

 

This discussion is meant for all audiences, and participants need not be familiar with Craig Santos Perez’s work. In fact, that’s the whole point - to familiarize folks with his writing before he arrives in Milwaukee. Excerpts of his writing will be provided.

 

Craig Santos Perez will give a poetry reading at with Garrett Caples on Saturday, October 8 at 7 PM;

and conduct a workshop - The Poetics of Food, Culture, and the Environment - on Sunday, October 9 at 10 AM.

 

For more information, please call Woodland Pattern at 414-263-5001, or email Program Coordinator, Michael Wendt michaelw@woodlandpattern.org.
