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 will premiere at the Egleston Square Peace Garden on August 18 and will be distributed at venues across the city.
