“Amelia Díaz Ettinger’s book of poems, Speaking at a Time, is a gathering of poems about her father, her daughter, the town of Caguas, and the race track, among other things. These recollections pulse with energy, and they echo the poetry of Lorca and Neruda. This is a strong, first book.”

—Peter Sears, Oregon Poet Laureate

About the Author

Born in Mexico and raised in Puerto Rico, Amelia Díaz Ettinger has written poems that reflect the struggle with identity often found in immigrants. She began writing poetry at age three by dictating her poems out loud to her uncles who wrote them down for her. Amelia continued writing poems and short stories throughout her life. Her writing took a back seat while she raised two wonderful human beings and worked as a high school teacher. Now retired, she has renewed her writing with fervor. She currently resides in Summerville, Oregon with her husband Chip, her dog Pi, and seven unnamed chickens. www.ameliaettinger.wordpress.com
