The 2014–15 Loft Mentor Series in Poetry and Creative Prose presents fiction mentor Diego Vázquez Jr. reading along with program participants Rebecca Diaz (fiction) and Timothy Otte (poetry).

Diego Vázquez Jr. is a poet, novelist, storyteller. He comes from indigenous migrants who crossed invisible lines to become immigrants under a common sky. He has never met an illegal human. Vázquez is grateful for his ongoing participation in The Women’s Writing Program at the Ramsey County Correctional Facility and the Sherburne County Jail in Elk River. This remarkable experience allows him new insights into the strength and joy of the human heart. Vázquez is the author of Growing Through the Ugly. He is completing work on a forthcoming novel, Border Town Sky.

Rebecca Diaz graduated from the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University with her BA in Writing & Literature. She is a homegrown artist, enchanted and inspired by the landscape, culture and psyche of her rural Minnesota hometown of Crookston. Growing up with Christian Fundamentalists and her love for the Red Lake River taught her almost everything she needs to know about life and writing. She is a poet turned fiction writer, looking into the tributaries of language, healing, and religious addiction. Rebecca has been published in S(y)mposium, BASE: Building Alliances for Social Engagement, Flaneur Foundry Arts Journal, fre-quen-cy: the poethics of change, Monkey Puzzle Magazine, Stays Magazine, and others. She lives in Minneapolis with her dog, and is courting the Mississippi River.

Claudia Rankine
The Loft Literary Center, Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 7pm
What does it mean to be a citizen in a "post-racial" society? Through poetry, essays, cultural criticism, and visual images, Don’t Let Me Be Lonely author Claudia Rankine tackles the question head on, and the result is a powerful and devastating book unlike any other. In Citizen, Rankine confronts racial aggressions, those she has experienced in life and those we have all experienced in the media and within ourselves. Some of these encounters are slights, seemingly slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV—everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person’s ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Citizen is an important and timely book, one that will become a touchstone in the necessary discussion about racism in America.

Claudia Rankine is the author of five collections of poetry, including Citizen and Don't Let me Be Lonely, and the play Provenance of Beauty: A South Bronx Travelogue, commissioned by the Foundry Theater and Existing Conditions (co-authored with Casey Llewellyn). Rankine is co-editor of the American Women Poets in the 21st Century series with Wesleyan University Press and The Racial Imaginary with Fence Books. A recipient of awards and fewllowships from The Academy of American Poets, The American Academy of Arts and Letters, The Lannan Foundation, Poets and Writers, and the National Endowments for the Arts, she teaches at Pomona College.

This is event is co-sponsored by Graywolf Press, the College of St. Benedict, and The Loft Literary Center. Citizen is made possible through a partnership with the College of St. Benedict, and honors the legacy of S. Mariella Gable, a distinguished teacher at the College. (The_Loft_Library)
