An Evening with Poet Conny Palacios
The works of Nicaragua-born poet, novelist, and literary critic Conny Palacios have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, and she has read her poetry in England, Spain, and throughout Latin America. Nine years ago, she was one of four writers invited to Washington, D.C., to read from her works during the Library of Congress’ celebration of 400 years of Hispanic poetry in the U.S.
Palacios, an associate Spanish professor at Anderson University in Anderson, South Carolina, discusses and reads her poetry in the latest installment of the Library’s 2016 Immigrant Heritage Series. The event also commemorates Hispanic Heritage Month.
