Poet Martín Espada

Poetry Days presents award-winning poet Martín Espada—whose poetry collections include The Republic of Poetry, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and Floaters, his most recent collection—at a Lowell Humanities webinar on April 14 at 7 p.m. Floaters is a topical reflection on immigration, bigotry, politics, and love. An English professor at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Espada has published more than 20 books as a poet, editor, essayist, and translator. His honors include the 2018 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the National Hispanic Cultural Center Literary Award, and an American Book Award. His reading will be followed by a moderated discussion and audience Q&A. Pre-registration is required and can be found at bc.edu/lowell.
