Where: Housing Works Bookstore Café: 126 Crosby St.
What time: 7 p.m.

With Philip Levine & Joan Margarit

Free and open to the public. No reservations.

Presented by Institut Ramon Llull

The paths of Catalan poet Joan Margarit and Californian poet Philip Levine converge at the search for universal truths. Their plain-speaking poetry is a testament to the durability of love, the strength of the human spirit, and the persistence of life in the face of death. Margarit will read from Tugs in the Fog. The readings will be followed by a conversation between the two poets.
