While in Minnesota on a John K. Walsh Residency Fellowship, Luisa Caycedo-Kimuara (poetry, ’13) was featured in the local paper, the Red Wing Republican Eagle! (She assures us that she hasn’t become a Republican, it’s just the name of the paper.) Unfortunately, there’s no link to the article, but you can take a look at the print version–a full page!–below.
