Please join us for a special evening, as Houston Poet Laureate Gwendolyn Zepeda discusses her new poetry book Falling in Love with Fellow Prisoners. In this collection, Zepeda captures the aching loneliness and vulnerability of contemporary urban life.
Gwendolyn Zepeda is the author of a short-story collection, To the Last Man I Slept with and All the Jerks Just Like Him (Arte Público Press, 2004), and three novels: Houston, We Have a Problema (Grand Central Publishing, 2009), Lone Star Legend (Grand Central Publishing, 2010) and Better with You Here (Grand Central Publishing, 2012). A native of Houston, Texas, she is the Bayou City’s very first Poet Laureate.
Refreshments will be served.
