Ruth Irupé Sanabria will be giving a reading at Ithaca College!  

Monday, November 3rd at 5:30pm

Textor 103. 

Irupé Sanabria's work is a powerful testament to her bilingualism and biculturalism. Along with capturing her unique experience as a young Latina in the U.S., her poetry is testimony to her experience as a daughter of political prisoners in Argentina and the experience of forced exile to the United States.

 Ruth Irupé Sanabria is the recent winner of the Letras Latinas/Red Hen Poetry Prize and her work, When the Strange House Testifies (Bilingual Press)was named 2nd best Latino book of poetry of the year in 2010.
