About the event
What is the tradition of our poets making art and building community in the Philippines and the diaspora, and why weren’t we taught about them in schools? Join NAFCON Oregon and Whitenoise Project as we celebrate National Poetry Month, exploring these questions with local writers Armin Tolentino and Abigail Licad. Our second #NAFCONTAK event of 2021 will feature a poetry reading and discussion about seizing the means of literary production and building alternate structures to the academy. There will be a community Q&A after the reading, all are invited. Featuring: Armin Tolentino Abigail Licad Pre-register for a 50% discount code for Armin Tolentino’s poetry debut, “We Meant to Bring it Home Alive”!
