Continuing a creative collaboration that began eight years ago in the mountains of Peru, Ana María Hernando and Kenneth Robinson will be reading their poetry, in English and in Spanish, at Innisfree Bookstore in Boulder Colorado, as part of the Salka Poetry Project. Thanks to a grant from the Boulder Arts Commission, this will be one of several events throughout 2013 when they will be performing their work.
Innisfree is a bookstore dedicated solely to poetry; it is one of three all-poetry bookstores in the entire country.
"We are honored to be able to present our work in such a special place this April, National Poetry Month. There will also be readings at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and Two Hands Paperie later this fall."
