The Poetry Center presents Feliz Lucia Molina, reading and in conversation with Alli Warren. Feliz Lucia Molina reads from an unpublished manuscript, intended as a sequel to her first book, Undercastle (Magic Helicopter Press, 2013). Molina's reading is followed by a conversation with Alli Warren, and in response to questions from the audience. This event is the first of a two-evening program in The Poetry Center's In Common Writers Series, funded in part by a grant from the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.

Tanya Hollis introduces the event, followed by Cassie Thornton reimagining the meaning and structure of debt; Christian Nagler reading a series of poems; and Christopher Higgenbotham performing his spoken-word poem “Why, America?” The event concludes with questions from the audience.
