Solstice is one of the leading literary magazines when it comes to publishing diverse voices and reaching diverse audiences. Four of its current and past editors (Danielle Legros Georges, Dzvinia Orlowsky, Regie Gibson and Ben Berman) – whose interests range from spoken word to translation, formalism to the experimental – will discuss what it means for a journal to focus on diversity and will read some of their favorite selections from past issues. Kathleen Aguero, a consulting Solstice editor and one of the first anthologists of multi-cultural literature, will moderate this panel. 30/4/16 Hawthorne Library,
