Tagus Press, a publisher dedicated to academic and literary works related to
the Portuguese and Lusophone diaspora experience, is proud to host a reading and book signing by Cape Verdean-American author Jarita Davis of her latest collection of poems Return Flights. The collection traces the lines of cultural return from her current home in southeastern New England to the islands of Cabo Verde off the coast of West Africa, a cultural crossroads in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Working between memories and lived experience in a wide range of languages and cultural environments, this book marks a pivotal moment in Cape Verdean-American writing.

This event is co-sponsored by the Cape Verdean Students Association, the Black Studies Program, the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, and the Frederick Douglass Unity House.
