Jacqueline Balderrama Poetry Reading
Jacqueline Balderrama’s Now In Color (Perugia Press, 2020) documents pieces of her family’s oral tradition and draws connections to ongoing injustices experienced by current migrant families, offering a living picture of a present inevitably tied to and colored by its past. Through the poetics of witness, ekphrasis, portraiture, and family mythos, Now In Color deepens our understanding of hybrid identities and calls attention to those impacted by tensions along the U.S.-Mexico border. Balderrama lives and teaches in Salt Lake City, where she is a doctoral candidate in literature and creative writing at the University of Utah. She is the author of the chapbook Nectar and Small (FLP 2019) and is co-poetry editor for Quarterly West and Iron City Magazine. Balderrama has been involved in the Letras Latinas initiative, the ASU Prison Education Program, and the Wasatch Writers in the Schools.
