Join us on Tuesday, April 26th at 12 PM EST for a Library Lunch Hour: Puerto Rican Poets. Did you know? April is Poetry Month! Tune in to this Library Lunch Hour to learn all about the Poetry Collections that are housed in our archives. Our library manager, Aníbal, will review the meaningful works of poets and the lasting impact that their poetry made on history. We’ll be highlighting poets from Miguel Algarín to Anita Vélez Mitchell, and including some special poetry readings of their works. Be sure to bring your questions in for a Q&A with Aníbal towards the end of the event. Bilingual translation services will be provided.
