Salina Poetry Series

Date: April 16, 2019, 7:00 PM
Venue: Salina Public Library - 301 West Elm Street
Sponsor: Salina Public Library, Salina Arts & Humanities

The Event:

Nationally-recognized writer and performer Melissa Lozada-Oliva will read for the 2019 Salina Poetry Series at 7 p.m. April 16 in the Prescott Room at Salina Public Library. General admission to the poetry series is $5 and $3.50 for students. A reception will follow the reading at SPARK Artist Resource Exchange, 146 S. Santa Fe, with refreshments provided by Friends of the Salina Public Library. Lozada-Oliva’s poem “Like Totally Whatever” won the National Poetry Slam Competition in 2015. Her Amazon-best-selling book “Peluda” (Button poetry) explores, interrogates and redefines the intersections of Latina identity, feminism, hair removal and what it means to belong. Her work has been featured in REMEZCLA, The Guardian, Vulture, Bustle, Glamour Magazine, The Huffington Post, Muzzle Magazine, The Adroit Journal, and BBC Mundo. She is an MFA candidate at New York University where she started teaching this spring. A performance by songwriter and guitarist Sadie Ward, of Salina, will precede the reading. Melissa will be introduced by Salina poet and publisher Jason Ryberg. The Spring Poetry Series is sponsored by Salina Public Library, Salina Arts and Humanities and SPARK Artist Resource Exchange. The series celebrates National Poetry Month with a poet performance every Tuesday in April. Upcoming poets are Meghann Plunkett on April 23, and Jen Harris and Emery Diercks on April 30.
