A partnership between the NHCC, Letras Latinas (Notre Dame) and the Academy of American Poets Poetry Coalition, this reading and book signing links poetry with the concept of democracy and features Natalie Scenters-Zapico and Albuquerque Poet Laureate Michelle Otero. “What is it then, between us” is a quote from Walt Whitman— the father of free verse, Bard of Brooklyn, the voice of Democracy — who was born 200 years ago, in 1819.
