Reading and Signing of SOUVENIR, the debut book by Poet-Playwright Aimee Suzara

Known for her poetry, theatrical work and performance, author Aimee Suzara has recently released her first full-length poetry book, SOUVENIR (WordTech Editions 2014), and will be doing a reading and signing at Modern Times Books. At this free public event, Suzara will be joined by guest poet Barbara Jane Reyes, award-winning author of Diwata (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2010).

SOUVENIR reflects a Filipino-American woman’s encounters with narratives of her history – from the “living exhibits” of Filipinos in the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, to the migration of her family across seas and continents to the Wild West. The collection of poems considers what souvenirs are kept as histories are buried, found, and reinvented.
