The Poetry Night Reading Series welcomes Francisco X. Alarcón and the Escritores del Nuevo Sol/Writers of the New Sun at 8 p.m. Thursday at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis.

In addition to Alarcón, the participants in the Writers of the New Sun include JoAnn Anglin, Paul Aponte, Fausto Avedaño, Nancy Aidé González, Xico González, Graciela Ramírez, Betty Sánchez and former Poetry night featured poet Arturo Mantecón.

Alarcón is an award-wining Chicano poet and educator and is the author of more than 15 volumes of poetry, including “From the Other Side of Night,” “Body in Flames” and “Ce-Uno-One: Poems for the New Sun.” He teaches at UC Davis, where he directs the Spanish for Native Speakers Program.

Alarcón co-founded the Writers of the New Sun community. His awards include the 1984 Chicano Literary Prize, the 1993 PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award and a Fred Cody Lifetime Achievement Award from the Bay Area Book Reviewers Association in 2002. His book “Snake Poems: An Aztec Invocation” (1992) won the American Book Award.

Writers of the New Sun is a literary community based in Sacramento that honors the literary and artistic cultures and traditions of Chicano, Latino, indigenous and Spanish-language peoples. Members write in Spanish, English or both.

The Poetry Night Reading Series takes place at the gallery on the first and third Thursdays of every month. An open mic follows the featured speakers. For more information, visit www.poetryindavis.com.
