 Kevin Gonzalez will read from his first collection of poetry, Cultural Studies. Kevin Gonzalez was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He holds degrees from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His poems and stories have appeared in Playboy, The Progressive, Virginia Quarterly Review, Poetry and McSweeneys. “With expansive grandeur and Whitmanian proclamations, Cultural Studies rides a cultural mélange with a channel-surfer’s brio, a surrealist’s hell-bent imagination and a realist’s vivid fidelity to the facts.” –Dean Young
