Poetry Reading at Doherty Library June 14
June 11, 2012
You are invited to join us Thursday, June 14 at 7:30pm for a unique bilingual poetry recital and “conversatorium” with visiting Venezuelan architect and poet Ana Teresa Celis. Celis will be joined by Houston-based critic and poet Aladar Temeshy, prologuist of her book.
“Corporalities” portrays the author’s spiritual journey and explores her relationship with God and spirituality through the human experience. The book also depicts her sojourning between Venezuela and Colombia and explores the process of change and acculturation.
Ana Teresa Celis was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and she was one of the first Venezuelan women to graduate from the School of Architecture at Universidad Central de Venezuela, UCV. Celis started her career as a member of the “Taller de Arquitectura del Banco Obrero,” and she later established an architecture and construction firm with her husband. She was a university professor and member of the urban design team that developed the “Sabana Grande Project,” the second development pole of Caracas.
This event is free and open to the public.
