Stars and Stars with Isa

Yesika Salgado: Cancer Sun, Taurus Moon, Sagittarius Rising

Poet and writer Yesika Salgado is a two-time National Poetry Slam finalist and the recipient of the 2020 International Latino Book Award in Poetry. Informed by her Salvadoran roots and her love for Los Angeles, Yesika explores yearning: a longing for lovers, home, big dreams. She is the author of the best-sellers Corazón, Tesoro, and Hermosa, and her works have been featured in the New York Times, LA Times, Teen Vogue, HBO and many more. Isa Nakazawa sits down with Yesika as they discuss how her Cancer stellium shows up in her radical honesty, a rare mix of self-compassion and realness towards the many versions of herself she has shed and transformed.
