2/22 Author Reading: Blue Ink Tears with Roberto Germán
Join Headwaters in welcoming Roberto Germán to the River Campus for a very special Author Reading of Blue Ink Tears. You may recognize Roberto, he was our Middle School Director from 2017-2020 and continues to live the PACT every day!
We hope that you can join us for this event to hear Roberto read from this book, answer questions, and more. This event is free to the community, but please RSVP so we can prepare seating. There will be copies of the book available for purchase at the event, but if you have your own already, bring it to be signed!
In Blue Ink Tears, Roberto shares writing from twenty years of his life through a bilingual poetry collection. His poems tell stories of love, relationships, race, identity, and everyday living. The structure, divided into three parts, explores what it's like to be a young man growing into his identity. You are invited into his point of view through free verse, rhyme, haiku, and more to vividly and sensorially describe his life as a first generation Black Dominican-American.
"Blue Ink Tears is a work of emotional beauty, historical awe, and nostalgic reminiscence. What you've compiled here is a collection of experiences, not just poems, that will make young readers think and dig deep." Tanya Manning-Yarde
