Please join us on Wednesday, November 9 at 7 pm in Room LL430 for a reading by Angela Narciso Torres.
Each semester, thanks to an endowment created by her family and friends, the Laurie Okuma Memorial Reading honors the memory of SDSU alumna, Laurie Matsueda Okuma. The fall 2022 Okuma Author, Angela Narciso Torres, will share poems from her most recent publications, including What Happens is Neither, which has been praised as “poems of intense reflection and loss, but also of rediscovery and delight.”
Angela Narciso Torres is the author of What Happens Is Neither (Four Way Books 2021), Blood Orange (winner of the 2013 Willow Books Literature Award for Poetry) and the chapbook, To the Bone (Sundress Publications 2020). Recent work appears or is forthcoming in POETRY, Prairie Schooner, Harpur Palate, and Poetry Northwest. A graduate of Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers and Harvard Graduate School of Education, Angela has received fellowships from Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, Illinois Arts Council, and Ragdale Foundation. She received the Yeats Poetry Prize from the W.B. Yeats Society of New York and was named one of Chicago's Lit 50: Who Really Books in Chicago by NewCity Magazine. Born in Brooklyn and raised in Manila, she currently resides in San Diego. She serves as a senior and reviews editor for RHINO Poetry.
This event is free and open to all.
