Acentos Espesos/Thick Accents

Acentos espesos/Thick Accents is a literary project about native Spanish speakers having to relate personally and professionally in English while living in the U.S. Through interviews with Jamaica Plain’s Hispanic community, Yara chronicles their ordeals, negotiations, and affectionate relationships in El Mundo Boston newspaper. These interviews are the basis for an on-going book of poetry and prose that premiered at the Eggleston Square Peace Garden on August 18, 2018. Supported by a Creative City grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts.
