Sanctuaries of the Desert Sea

Many stopped by the Delaware Main Library last night for a bilingual poetry reading. Santurarios Desierto Mar/Sanctuaries Desert Sea is the newly-released bilingual book of poetry by Dr. Juan Armando Rojas and translated by his wife, Dr. Jennifer Rathbun.

Rojas and Rathbun read in Spanish and in English for an eager crowd Wednesday, sharing poems and relating stories of his time in the desert. This collection of poetry was written over 20 years ago by Rojas, and was previously published only in Spanish. Rojas answered questions about his writing process, and Rathbun about the translation process. 

Professors Rojas and Rathbun will also lead our final screening of Latino Americans: 500 Years of History next Thursday, October 15th at 7:00 p.m. at the Strand Theatre in downtown Delaware.
