Presented by Dr. Susana Chávez-Silverman, Pomona College
2:00 PM in the Haggerty Museum
Susana Chávez-Silverman, bilingual escritora and professor at Pomona College, will perform her own unique brand of intercultural, introspective yet energetic poesía that pushes the boundaries between Spanish and English. As Ilan Stavans has said, “Susana ChávezSilverman is not a code-switcher but a switch-burner”. Dr. Chávez-Silverman has authored numerous books, including Killer Crónicas: Bilingual Memories, Scenes from la Cuenca de Los Angeles y otros Natural Disasters, and, most recently, Heartthrob: del Balboa Café al Apartheid and Back. A reception will follow the poetry performance.
