Poetry Handmade Books / Poesía hecha a mano

Please join us at McNally Jackson Bookstore on September 2nd, 2011 at 7:00pm,

Yarisa Colón will be speaking about the creation of her handmade poetry books.

McNally Jackson Bookstore is located on 52 Prince Street (between Lafayette & Mulberry), New York City.

This event has been organized thanks to Javier Molea.

Yarisa Colón Torres (1977) was born in Puerto Rico, and moved to Queens, New York when she was fourteen. She publishes her poetry by creating unique handmade books. “Caja de voces” (collaboration with Waleska Rivera, 2006), “¿Entrelínea o secuestro?” (French translation by Yarín Medina Gil, 2007), “Sin cabeza” (revised edition by Taller Asiray, 2011) are among her latest publications. Recently, she also published a limited edition of “Cibeles que sueña=Cybele As She Dreams”, a poetry book written by Lourdes Vázquez and translated by Enriqueta Carrington.

Yarisa has shared her work at museums, universities and street fairs in Puerto Rico and abroad. Her work has been reviewed by El Diario/La Prensa, AHA Magazine, Claridad newspaper and Revista del Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, among others. In 2003, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College (NY) invited her to be part of the project “Puerto Rican Writers: History and Context”, which provides a space in the general archive to preserve and share her documents. Please visit her blog Espacioasiray.blogspot.com to view some of her work.
