LitLounge--The Poet X: Online Event

Wednesday, September 9, 2020
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In Elizabeth Acedvedo's story, poetry helps first-generation Dominican-American teen Xiomara Batista come into her own.

The debut novelist’s free verse in The Poet X gives Xiomara’s coming-of-age story an undeniable pull. Its emotionally charged bluntness reflects her determination and strength. At its heart, this is a complex and sometimes painful exploration of love in its many forms, with Xiomara’s growing love for herself reigning supreme (NoveList Plus). The book can be checked out through all library eBook platforms, including Hoopla, where copies are always available. This discussion is in collaboration with Morton Grove Public Library.
