Poetry reading and Q&A with Diana Delgado, author of Tracing the Horse, and Leticia Hernández Linares, author of Mucha Muchacha. This discussion will be moderated by youth poet Chelsea Guevara.

The City Library is please to welcome poets Diana Delgado and Leticia Hernández-Linares as they read from their work. After the reading, there will be a Q&A discussion moderated by youth poet Chelsea Guevara. 

Set in Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley, Diana Marie Delgado’s debut poetry collection follows the coming-of-age of a young Mexican-American woman trying to make sense of who she is amidst a family and community weighted by violence and addiction. With bracing vulnerability, the collection chronicles the effects of her father’s addiction and her brother’s incarceration, asking the reader to consider reclamation and the power of the self.

Leticia Hernández-Linares is an educator, interdisciplinary artist, and author of the poetry collection Mucha Muchacha, Too Much Girl (Tía Chucha Press, 2015). She is also the co-editor of The Wandering Song: Central American Writing in the United States. Widely published, her work appears in collections and journals such as Latinas: Struggles & Protests in 21st Century USA, Street Art San Francisco, This Bridge We Call Home, Huizache, and Pilgrimage. A 2017 San Francisco Library Laureate, she is the recipient of four San Francisco Arts Commission Individual Artist grants, and has received support from the Creative Work Fund and the Zellerbach Family Foundation. A long time community worker and Mission resident, she teaches in the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University. Visit her: joinleticia.com

This event is made possible with support from The City Library and Utah Humanities.

About the library

The Glendale Branch of the Salt Lake City Public Library system, designed by Architectural Nexus and opened in February of 2015, offers approximately 20,000 square feet of space, making it the largest City Library branch. The branch houses 40,000 circulating materials, public computers, a lounge area, a green screen room, and a grand piano donated through the Mundi Project.

The floor plan of the branch offers open views across the building while creating designated spaces for children's, teen, and adult Library collections. An enclosed activity room easily accommodates various Library programming, and a designated teen space offers a place for young adults to gather, study, and access Library resources and services.

Built with the Glendale neighborhood in mind, the building shape includes a curved form that reaches out and embraces the community while creating an outdoor plaza. Special colored concrete and landscaped designs represent the geographic area along the Jordan River, while the design scheme of interior signage incorporates colors and forms that represent the many ethnic backgrounds of Glendale neighborhood residents.

The branch is easily accessible to area students, being located just one block from Glendale Middle School, Mountain View Elementary School, and the Salt Lake City School District's Community Learning Center.

The diversity of building materials, finishes, and colors of the Glendale Branch reflect the diversity of the Glendale neighborhood, which is one of the most diverse communities in Salt Lake City.
