Everyday Chica

​Everyday Chica, winner of the 2010 Longleaf Press Poetry Award, offers readers an evocative poetic rendering of the Cuban-American experience in language so personal and deeply felt that it becomes for readers the universal language of all natives and exiles, of dislocations and homecomings.

Everyday Chica, Music and More

This spoken word CD includes the poems from the Everyday Chica chapbook plus new and selected poems set to Caribbean folk music performed by Kevin Meehan and Jorge Milanés. The story "Muchacha" is also included.
