At the Foot of the White House

At the Foot of the White House

A reading from the poetry anthology, At the Foot of the White House: Hispanic Poets in Washington D.C, published by the American Academy of the Spanish Language, and edited by Luis Alberto Ayala Ambroggio and Carlos Parada.

The anthology includes the work of 24 of the most prominent poets of the area, including Naomi Ayala, Quique Avilés, Rei Berroa, Consuelo Hernández, Gladys Ilarregui, Mayamérica Cortez, Arturo Salcedo Martínez, Alberto Avendano, Marty Sanchez-Lowery, Milagros Terán and Vladimir Monge.

It also includes a pair of essays by the editors, putting in context the thematic and aesthetic development Hispanic poetry in Washington within American poetical perspectives and the local history of Hispanic-Latino poetry. The poetry is interspersed with photographs by the Spanish academic, writer and photographer Gerardo Piña Rosales, which offer a cutting-edge visual essay that creates a stimulating dialogue with the poetry.
