Summer Tales with Natalie Díaz

Share This:

Poet Natalie Díaz will be virtually coming to Rutgers for a live Zoom session!

Díaz won an American Book Award for her first collection of poems, When My Brother Was an Aztec, in 2012, and released her second collection (Postcolonial Love Poem) last year to similar rave reviews.

She was awarded a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant in 2018. A Mojave born and raised in the Fort Mojave Indian Village and an enrolled member of the Gila River Indian Tribe, Díaz is known for addressing issues facing Native communities in her poetry, such as racism, poverty, addiction, and especially the conservation of languages and cultures.

This is open to Rutgers Alumni and free. For more information visit,
