Teatro Paraguas is pleased to present a poetry reading and book launch with Juan J. Morales reading from his new book of poetry, A Handyman’s Guise to End Times, published by UNM Press this year. This new book is part of the Mary Burritt Christiansen Poetry Series. 

Reading with Juan Morales will be acclaimed Santa Fe poets Lauren Camp and Rebecca Aronson.

In Morales’s newest collection, an imagined zombie apocalypse intertwines with personal narrative. From zombie dating to the sin of popcorn ceilings, these poems investigate the nature of impermanence while celebrating the complexities of life. 

Juan J. Morales is also the author of The Siren World and Friday and the Year That Followed: Poems. 

These poems are imbued with the work of trying to understand the histories of broken things like unions, selves, homes, pasts. They carry strategies for survival even as

they document crisis and loss.” 

—Aracelis Girmay, author of Kngdom Animalia: Poems
