Carlos Andres Gomez and Angel Nafis

09/05/2019 - 7:30pm

In Hijito—selected by Eduardo C. Corral as winner of the 2018 Broken River Prize—Carlos Andrés Gómez, prize-winning poet and author of the memoir Man Up: Reimagining Modern Manhood, writes of brutality and beauty with the same urgency and with a truth that burns readily. As a vital and tender exploration and deconstruction of contemporary society, his poetry engages with America’s ever-changing landscape and the ways in which race, gender, and violence coalesce.
