​The Antología 2016 (FeIPoL) is a poetry anthology that gives testimony of a united Latino community and includes some of the greatest and most relevant Latino poets of our time, such as: the United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, Lucha Corpi (U.S.), Saúl Ibargoyen (Uruguay), Antonieta Villamil (Colombia), Armando Alanís Pulido (Mexico), Mayra Santos Febres (Puerto Rico) and Julián Herbert (Mexico), among others.

This poetry collection is a kaleidoscope that fills our eyes with colors of hope and solidarity in times of political and social turmoil. Throughout this past year we have heard a radical politician use a rhetoric of hatred towards Latinos, immigrants, minorities and frankly anyone who looks, speaks or thinks differently. But rather than responding with hatred, our literary community has responded with a festival of brotherhood to celebrate unity.
In the words of Juan Felipe Herrera, "Celebramos a aquellos / que marcharon en la noche / para hablar de paz."

The Antología 2016 (FeIPoL) is much more than a collection of poetry; it is a symbol of the triumph of kindness over hostility, of joy over bitterness, of fraternity over alienation. It is a generation of artists who have decided to raise their voices to bring forth the change they wish to see.

Comentario de Antonieta: Vuelvo a estas paginas una y otra vez para vivir de nuevo los días de McAllen con la imagen sureal de un camión de propaganda recorriendo la ciudad con los rostros y nombres de los poetas homenajeados, de leer solidaridad, unión, amor por la vida y la tenacidad que necesitamos para afrontar lo que venga. Gracias Feipol.
