Language, commerce and colonial history once connected the world's original global cities of Manila, Madrid and Mexico City. This in-person reading explores how poets in the Filipinx and Latinx diasporas refigure identity and rediscover kinship in a multicultural and postcolonial world.

Featuring Josiah Luis Alderete, Aileen Cassinetto, Alan Chazaro, Alice Dparres, Dina Klarisse, Keana Aguilar Labra, Kevin Madrigal Galindo, Neal Tayco & Jorge Argueta
