Join us tonight as The Community Library kicks off for a new series, Around the World in Lit. This Wednesday at 6:00pm Dr. Raquel Arenz will discuss Argentinian writer Alphonsina Storni, one of the strongest feminist voices in Latin America during the modernist movement. We’ve just added two new works by Storni to our collection: Mask and Clover (selected poems in Spanish), and My Heart Flooded With Water

Future meetings of Around the World in Lit will feature more writers from Latin America, new wave writers from China, and many more. In anticipation, we are refreshing our international literature collection with new works by Can Xue (Old Floating Cloud and Vertical Motion), Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz (2 bilingual editions of her poems and writings), Gabriela Mistral (translated by Ursula K. LeGuin), and many more. Please comment if you have any suggestions to enhance our collection of global literature!
