@ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMFree
Avenue 50 Studio invites you
to the book launch celebration of
My Zocalo Heart
by Mary E. Torregrossa
Poet Anne Babson Carter says of the portrait and persona poems collected inside, My Zocalo Heart; “[they] hold evocative images of memory that caught and drew me close as could be possible to the world she writes of.” One finds poignant detail in the telling and retelling of stories.
Artist and writer Toti O’Brien says in her book review, “Open the book in the middle. Be careful. Something might fall off. A small miscellanea of wonders will scatter itself.”
Poet and Day of the Dead altar artist Consuelo Flores describes the poems as, “at times whimsical, yet haunting… her verse infuses with magical realism the brilliance of ordinary life.”
Pointing again to the element of light evident throughout this gallery of poems, poet Ron Koertge observes, “These poems don’t need a nightlight. They are luminous all on their own.”
