Carlos A. Aguilera: Live Reading with Pitt’s Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures
Sunday, April 11 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm
Join City of Asylum and the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures for a reading and conversation with Cuban poet Carlos A. Aguilera. A former ICORN exiled writer resident, Carlos was banned from Cuba after joining the 2003 protests against the imprisonment of 75 authors and intellectuals. Carlos will talk with Pitt’s Daniel Balderston and Ricardo Vazquez Diaz about his activism, the cultural and political divide in Cuba, and his life abroad. He will also read from recently published collections of poetry and short stories.
