QCOSTARICA – The young Costa Rican Alelí Prada premiered her first poetry book “Cuando llueve sobre el hormiguero (When it rains on the anthill)”.
This collection of poems was published by the publishing house New York Poetry Press, in the collection “Tránsito de Fuego”.
The back cover is by Mía Gallegos, renowned national poet and journalist.
“Cuando llueve sobre el hormiguero is the first collection of poems published by Alelí Prada. It is fresh and novel poetry, in which the poet associates various traces of the Costa Rican landscape. It is a poetry of realities,” says Gallegos.
“I am an erratic woman, without a single drop of shame. In the same way, I will continue to release my tongue, increasingly long and restless to catch whoever crosses my path,” says the author on her part.
Alelí Prada is a Costa Rican singer-songwriter, poet and composer. Today, in addition to launching her book, she is developing a project as a soloist, with original music and literary production.
The official presentation of this book was on Sunday at La Gata Gastronómica, located in San Pedro de Montes de Oca, San José.
