El Libro Centroamericano De Los Muertos / The Central American Book of the Dead: A Bilingual Reading and Conversation with Mexican Poet, Balam Rodrigo – Borderlands

Event Navigation

Balam Rodrigo, an acclaimed poet and dynamic speaker from Chiapas, Mexico, joins us in November for a bilingual public event at the Hammer Theatre and a day-long creative writing workshop in Spanish, co-sponsored by the Chicanx/Latinx Student Success Center. 

Rodrigo’s latest award-winning book, El Libro Centroamericano De Los Muertos (2018) focuses on the experiences of Central American immigrants as they cross more than one border in their perilous journey towards the U.S.. The book-length poem incorporates the spiritual cosmovision of indigenous people from the region, while simultaneously exposing the brutal realities of their contemporary flight from violence and poverty.
