Lit Balm: A Dominican Night to Honor Rhina P. Espaillat
LIT BALM is a most-weekly interactive livestream reading series taking place at 4pm Central most Saturdays. During the month of April, they are co-ordinating all shows with the New Orleans Poetry Festival.
Four Dominican poets will read: Rhina Espaillat, Jose Enrique Delmonte, Soledad Alvarez, and Juan Matos. Rhina Espaillat will read her own poetry, and the other poets will read Rhina's poetry as well as their own. Jose Enrique Delmonte will read in Spanish, with translations provided by Susan Dickey.
Marc Vincenz, Cassandra Atherton, and Jonathan Penton host Lit Balm shows.
