The Perfect Latino
Author, professor and poet Javier Ávila will bring his one-man show to DSU in the DUC - Hurd/Commonwealth Room. The presentation is free and open to the campus community.
Ávila’s show, “The Perfect Latino,” blends comedy and poetry to explore the American Latino experience. The show draws on the arts, education and entertainment to deliver a message about diversity, inclusion, race and representation. The presentation also provides audiences with a platform for further conversations about the future of America.
Ávila is a renowned poet and novelist. His novel "Different" became a bestseller and was turned into an award-winning motion picture titled "Miente," which was screened in more than a dozen countries. His poetry books "The Symmetry of Time" and "The Dead Man’s Position" earned him awards by the Pen Club and the Puerto Rico Institute of Culture, respectively.
