Demetria 6 (1)

Demetria Martinez, “Sanctuary: Readings & Recollections”

6 pm

This talk is part of the educational programming related to People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements.

Martinez will read from her novel, Mother Tongue, and talk about the 1988 conspiracy in connection with allegedly transporting two Salvadoran refugees into the United States. That historical moment speaks to conditions, today, in the struggle to stand with our immigrant brothers and sisters. Demetria Martinez has written poetry, essays, and novels. She co-authored a book on immigration reform with former Oklahoma Senator, Fred Harris. She was honored with an international Latino book award and an American Book Award. In 2011, she received the Luis Leal Award for Distinction in Chicana/Latino Literature.
