An exciting poetry event is happening in Portland soon. One of the finest Mexican poets, David Huerta, will be giving a free poetry reading at the First Unitarian Church in Portland on Saturday, January 16 at 7:00 pm.
This is a rare opportunity to attend a reading of a master of Mexican poetry; Huerta will read in Spanish, and his translator Marc Schafer will read in English.
For more information take a look at the link to the Oregonian article and read the attached official press release from Copper Canyon Press who last year published the first substantial English translation of his work. His poem, "Concerning Sound," is also attached.
