Join us for an Afternoon Tertulia: The Lettered Barrida on Thursday, February 17th, 2022 at 4 PM EST. We will be joined by author and professor Jorell Meléndez-Badillo and Centro researcher José Laguarta Ramírez who will be discussing Meléndez-Badillo’s newest book, The Lettered Barrida. In his book, Meléndez-Badillo tells the story of how a cluster of self-educated workers burst into Puerto Rico’s world of letters and navigated the colonial polity that emerged from the 1898 US occupation. After the discussion, whose themes are outlined below, Jorell and José will open the floor for audience members to ask questions.
