América invertida: An Anthology of Emerging Uruguayan Poets, edited by Jesse Lee Kercheval, introduces twenty-two Uruguayan poets under the age of forty to an English-speaking audience in a bilingual edition. At this fast-paced event, the editor will be joined by translators Catherine Jagoe, Ron Salutsky, Julia Leverone, Keith Ekiss, and Uruguayan poet Laura Cesarco Eglin to read poems from the collection. Translator Peter Thompson says, "This superbly edited anthology breaks new ground. North Americans and Anglophones with diverse interests will come to this trove of new writing with gratitude. Not only have we lacked access to this era of Uruguayan poetry, but the poems themselves are brilliant—and the translations crisp and sure-footed."
