Because We Come from Eveything: Poetry and Migration

During March 2017 all our Poetry Center programs are dedicated to a theme under the sign of a line from U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera in his poem "Border Bus":

"We are everything hermana
Because we come from everything"

We share this theme — Because We Come from Everything: Poetry and Migration — with 30+ organizations across the US engaged in the Poetry Coalition, poetry-presenting organizations coming together to promote the value poets bring to our culture and communities.

More on the Poetry Coalition here.
