Waubonsee Community College

Poet Jacob Saenz: A reading and discussion with Waubonsee’s Multicultural Literatures of the U.S. Class

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 Saenz read and discuss his work in the contexts of reading and writing poetry, literary analysis (form, content, and subject), Latinx identity, masculinity, urban life, heterosexual love and relationships, and/or literary tradition(s).
