Phone: (312) 362-8795
Price: Free
Luis Humberto Valadez is a poet from Chicago Heights, IL, an economically depressed south Chicago suburb. This backdrop looms in "what i'm on," (University of Arizona Press). Released in March 2009, it has been described by activist writer Amiri Baraka as having "strong--real light flashes." Valadez was educated at Columbia College Chicago and the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University. He currently works as an AmeriCorps VISTA Supervisor for Chicago HOPES. He also teaches poetry to 4th grade through Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education. The reading will be filmed for a documentary on Valadez.
