I want to thank Charles and Tor for letting me join....
Last year I translated and edited a section on Brazilian poetry for Aufgabe magazine. We have been able to get a grant from the Brazilian Consulate in Chicago monies to bring poets from Brazil this fall to Chicago for a series of readings. These poets include Regis Bonvicino and Sergio Medeiros and perhaps Claudia Roque Pinto and another poet. I am in the process with Mark Tardi of Litmus of organizing these events and I am wondering if there are any other places near to Chicago that might want to host them for a reading?
