We speak with Lorena Duarte and Kristin Naca about an upcoming event called Latino Poetry Now, which features readings by three distinct and dynamic voices in Latino poetry. This national series has been touring the country and now makes a stop in St. Paul.

Also on this week's show, we chat with Nick Hupton about his debut tween novel If I Know it's Coming, which tells the story of a middle school student who is a baseball fan trying to survive school when he learns that his mother - an Army nurse - has disappeared in Iraq.
