Reading by Maria Negroni
Hosted by Oscar Bermeo
Maria Negroni, an Argentinian native, is a writer, poet, essayist, translator and professor. As a poet, she is celebrated throughout South America. She is the author of two books of essays, one novel, and six books of poetry. In 1994, her book Night Journeys received the Argentina National Book Award. The collection of 62 tightly-woven narrative poems is Negroni’s first work of poetry to be translated into English. “This book is pervaded by the spooky sense of a woman traveling in many directions, most of them unrequested, journeying through shadows and mirrors, navigating the mysteries by shuttling between life and death” (The Washington Post). She currently teaches Latin American Literature and Creative Writing at Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
An open mic session will follow Ms. Negroni’s reading.
