YESIKA SALGADO reads from her new book of poetry TESORO

Tesoro (Not A Cult)

Tesoro is a story of family, survival, and the formative power of the women in Salgado’s life. It is a telling of the balance between love and perseverance. Tesoro is an unearthing of the sacred connections that make a person whole; the treasure we forever keep with us when we learn from those we love, when we mourn those we’ve lost, and what grows in between.

Yesika Salgado is a Los Angeles based Salvadoran poet who writes about her family, her culture, her city and her brown body. She has shared her work in venues and campuses throughout the country. In the last four years she self published zines of poetry titled The Luna Poems, WOES and Sentimental Boss Bitch. She is a three time member of Da Poetry Lounge Slam Team and a 2017 National Poetry Slam finalist. Her work has been featured in Latina Magazine, Univision, Vibe Magazine, Huffington Post, NPR, TEDx and many other digital platforms.
