Wednesday September 23, 7pm.
Two poets from the same generation, Rosana Acquaroni and Cecilia Quílez, will offer a poetry recital traversed by desire, absence, love, memory, unfulfilled dreams… as well as a celebration of life. Two authors at the peak of their creative work, sharing a determination to write sincerely and without artifice, building a sound poetic construction.
