“Revolution and Writing” with renowned Nicaraguan poet, writer and revolutionary Gioconda Belli – Nov. 14

The campus will be hosting “Revolution and Writing,” an evening with renowned Nicaraguan poet, author and revolutionary Gioconda Belli, on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in Aliso Hall 150 on the CI campus.

Belli will read selected poems and excerpts from her latest award-winning novel, “The Country of Women (El País de las Mujeres),” in English and Spanish and engage in discussion with the audience.  The novel is a political satire that envisions a nation where women take over the government, send men home to “rest,” and enact broad social and political changes.

Belli is the leading poet of Nicaragua, one of Central America’s most celebrated writers, and an award-winning international best-selling author and poet.  A central figure in the Nicaraguan Revolution, she held important positions in the Sandinista Party and the revolutionary government until 1993, when she left the party and became an outspoken critic of current President Daniel Ortega.
