Analicia Sotelo’s debut poetry collection Virgin is a vivid portrait of the artist as a young woman. At every step, these poems seduce with history, folklore, and sensory detail—grilled meat, golden habañeros, and burnt sugar—before delivering clear-eyed and eviscerating insights into power, deceit, relationships, and ourselves. Presented by The Center for Literary Arts, SJMA, and MACLA.
