Can’t-Wait Wednesday: The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNext Edited by Felicia Rose Chavez, José Olivarez, and Willie Perdomo


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings where bloggers share which upcoming releases they’re most looking forward to. Join us every Wednesday and watch your TBR list multiply.

I finally read José Olivarez’s poetry collection, Citizen Illegal, and fell so much in love with it. The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNext was on my radar but shot up to the top of my TBR list after reading Citizen Illegal. If you are looking to diversify your poetry collection, I’d recommend looking into The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNext, edited by Felicia Rose Chavez, José Olivarez, and Willie Perdomo and the books that precede it. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

      “In the dynamic tradition of the BreakBeat Poets anthology, The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNEXT celebrates the embodied narratives of Latinidad. Poets speak from an array of nationalities, genders, sexualities, races, and writing styles, staking a claim to our cultural and civic space. Like Hip-Hop, we honor what was, what is, and what’s next.”
