Poetry with Eduardo Corral
2020 National Book Award longlisted poet Eduardo C. Corral will read from and discuss his latest collection, "Guillotine." Through the voices of undocumented immigrants, border patrol agents and scorned lovers, Corral writes dramatic portraits of contradiction, survival and a deeply human, relentless interiority.
