The Department of Modern Languages is having a series of readings in Spanish by faculty and graduate students.
In the first one, last October, Dr. Melissa Figueroa and Dr. Daniel Torres, both from Puerto Rico, read from Figueroa’s collection of short stories, Nota de duelo (Mourning Note), and Torres’ book of poetry, Poemas para leerse en la calle (Poetry to be Read in the Street).
In November, Latin American Studies graduate student Luis Enrique Mendoza Chávez (Perú) and Professor Amado Láscar (Chile) read their poetry.
In January, Dr. José “Pepo” Delgado Costa (Puerto Rico) is presenting his new novel Guasábara (Uprising), and former Ohio University professor Xelo Candel Vila (Spain) will visit in March to read her poetry.
This series is organized by Drs. Melissa Figueroa and Daniel Torres in order to promote Spanish and Spanish American Literature on campus and to bring together Spanish speakers and readers with contemporary authors.
