The Dominican poet and narrator, José Acosta, will discuss issues relevant to his situation as Dominican writer in NYC, as seen in his diverse body of stories. He will share his reflections on both the creative gestation of his narratives and the particular conflictive experience of the Dominican diaspora in NYC.
Join us in this soul-searching journey into the writer’s creative processes and his characters’ struggle for self realization. The talk will be in Spanish with simultaneous translation by Prof. Lourdes Rojas
