CANCELLED: Richard Blanco

Monday, April 6, 7:30 p.m.

We are actively working to reschedule this event. More details will be sent to ticketholders soon with updates and options.

Selected by President Obama in 2013 as the fifth inaugural poet in US history, Richard Blanco is the youngest and first Latino, immigrant, gay person to serve in the role. Blanco characterizes the negotiation of cultural identity, community, and belonging in his award-winning poetry. His most recent collection, How To Love a Country, interrogates the American narrative and celebrates the still-unkept promise of its ideals. In celebration of National Poetry Month and the DMA’s new exhibition My|gration in the Center for Creative Connections, Blanco will debut an original commissioned poem inspired by a work of art in the collection.

Ticketholders will receive more information soon. 

Promotional Partner: Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum

I Want You to Know We’re Still Here, a poignant memoir by Esther Safran Foer, is her account of growing up in the shadow of the Holocaust, a tragedy that loomed in the backdrop of daily life, felt but never discussed. When Foer learns that her father had a previous wife and daughter, both killed in the Holocaust, she travels to the Ukraine, armed with only a black-and-white photo and a hand-drawn map, determined to find the shtetl where her father hid to survive during the war.
