Spanish poetry Archives

It's not everyday we have the pleasure of welcoming to the Valley one of the leading voices in the Spanish-speaking literature world. Renowned Uruguayan poet Roberto Echavarren will be in Phoenix this Thursday, April 27, at Burton Barr Central Library. The essayist, novelist, professor and translator will be reading from his latest poetry collection, "The Espresso Between Sleep and Wakefulness" (Cardboard House Press, $14.99).

Originally from Spain, Olvido García Valdés is one of the most renowned poets in the Hispanic literary community. Last October, Phoenix-based Cardboard House Press published the translated version of her book And We Were All Alive/ Y Todos Estabamos Vivos.
