GuerrillaReads No. 23

Alicia Partnoy is a human rights activist, poet, translator and scholar.

A political activist in Argentina in the 1970s, she is a survivor of the secret detention camps where more than 30,000 people “disappeared” from her country. Her testimony before the Argentine Commission for the Investigation of Disappearances, entitled “Nunca Más,” became a bestseller when it was published in 1984. She is perhaps best known as the author of The Little School: Tales of Disappearance and Survival.

In this guerrilla reading, Partnoy reads from her book of poetry, Little Low Flying / Volando Bajito (translated by Gail Wronsky).
