We are proud to present a reading by Laurie Ann Guerrero and Carl Marcum.
Laurie Ann Guerrero was born and raised in the Southside of San Antonio and is the author of four collections: Babies under the Skin, A Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying, A Crown for Gumecindo, and I Have Eaten the Rattlesnake: New & Selected. Guerrero has served as Poet Laureate of the city of San Antonio (2014-2016) and the state of Texas (2016-2017).
Carl Marcum is the author of Cue Lazarus, and A Camera Obscura, winner of the Letras Latinas / Red Hen Poetry Prize. Marcum received his MFA from the University of Arizona and was a Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University.
The Tom Sanders Memorial Reading is an annual presentation in the Poetry Center's Reading and Lecture series. Established by the generosity of Tom's friends in 2017, this event features writers who were former students at the University of Arizona, writers who were formerly or currently members of the University of Arizona faculty, or University of Arizona Press authors.
Additional support for the 2021-2022 Reading & Lecture Series was provided by Innovations in Healthy Aging – a strategic collaboration led by the University of Arizona Health Sciences, rethinking what it means to thrive while aging.
