Poetry Reading: Martín Espada

Wednesday April 12 6:00pm-7:00pm

Library

Poet and National Book Award-winner Martín Espada joins the GCC community for an evening of poetry. Free and open to the public. “As a poet, essayist, translator, editor and attorney, Martín Espada has dedicated much of his career to the pursuit of social justice, including fighting for human rights and reclaiming the historical record. His critically acclaimed collections of poetry celebrate—and lament—the working class experience. Whether narrating the struggles of immigrants as they adjust to life in the United States, or chronicling the battles that Latin Americans have waged against their own repressive governments, Espada has given voice to otherness, powerlessness, and poverty into poetry that is at once moving and vivid. He is the author of more than a dozen collections of poetry and several books of essays, the translator of Puerto Rican poet Clemente Soto Vélez, and the editor of influential anthologies such as El Coro (1997) and Poetry Like Bread (1994).” – poetryfoundation.org
