"New Mexico Poets Celebrate Bless Me, Ultima"
The National Hispanic Cultural Center is partnering with the City of Albuquerque libraries on the Big Read of Bless Me, Ultima which runs from October 19 - November 20, 2012.
In collaboration with Levi Romero, New Mexico Centennial Poet, the NHCC is inviting select youth and established New Mexico poets to write an original poem inspired by the characters, themes and story of Bless Me, Ultima. A reading of the poems will take place on Saturday, November 3, at the NHCC.
This event will be both a celebration of Bless Me, Ultima and an opportunity to honor the literary contributions of Rudolfo Anaya through poetry and spoken word.
