Creative Grape will be celebrating Letisia Cruz’s new poetry collection, Migrations & Other Exiles, on
March 1, 2023 from 6:30 – 9:30.
Letisia is the winner of the Idaho Prize for Poetry 2022 and is a member of the Artists Enclave of Historic
Idaho Prize for Poetry Final Judge, Dzvinia Orlowsky, commented, “With a Bachelardian dreaminess and
a poetic language that is both sensuous and incisive, Migrations & Other Exiles questions the
contradictory nature of human love.” Orlowsky goes on to say, “Precise and elegant, redemptive in its
musicality and stunning imagery, Migrations & Other Exiles is a remarkable, stand-out collection.”
Josh Plummer, a local singer songwriter, will be joining Letisia, interspersing his original songs with the
poetry reading. Signed copies of Letisia’s new book will be available.
