Señal Series US Tour
October 9th to 14th, 2016
Señal is a chapbook series for contemporary poetry from Latin America in translation, published collaboratively by BOMB Magazine, Libros Antena Books, and Ugly Duckling Presse.
Señal publishes two chapbooks a year, linked thematically, conceptually, or trans-historically, troubling received ideas around what the terms “contemporary” and “Latin America” might represent.
