Acclaimed Poet Jacob Saenz’s book, Throwing the Crown, depicts his journey navigating through the complex web of family, Latinx identity, community, masculinity challenged by neighborhood gangs, and life as a bachelor. His writing is wide-eyed and direct. It trembles with vibrancy, urgency, humor, and compassion.
Hear the author read from his work and have a conversation with Waubonsee English faculty member, Dan Portincaso, about the development of his journey as a poet and about the writing craft. This will be followed by a Q & A from the audience.
