Brazilian Poet to Present Bilingual Reading on Campus
Salgado Maranhao, one of Brazil's most popular contemporary poets, will give a bilingual reading from his new book, "Blood of the Sun," on Wednesday, October 10, at Radford University.
In addition to the reading, Maranhao will speak about his rise from humble rural beginnings to his success as an author. Alexis Levitin, translator for "Blood of the Sun," will join him on campus. The free public program will be at 7 p.m. in Heth Hall 014.
Maranhao has written eight books of poetry as well as song lyrics and has recorded with some of Brazil's leading jazz and pop musicians. His campus visit is being co-sponsored by Radford University's School of Communication, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, the Dean of the College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences, and the Office of the Provost.
