Viva Consuelo Hernandez!

I'm in Washington DC right now, where the Spanish language literary scene has been growing like a beanstalk in summer. Anyone around here who writes in Spanish ought to get plugged to Para Eso La Palabra. Their next big event features Colombian poet and American University Spanish Professor Consuelo Hernandez, who will be presenting her new book, Poemas de escombros y cenizas / Poems From Debris and Ashes (English translation by Maureen Contreni). It's this Friday April 7th at 6:30 p.m., Folger Shakespeare Library, 301 East Capitol Street, SE, Washington, D.C., 2003, $5 admission.
