MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Salgado Maranhão is Brazil's best-known poet of his generation; he's won every major literary award his country has to offer and has collaborated extensively with well-known Brazilian musicians, appearing on numerous recordings. He is touring with his two books in English translation, Blood of the Sun (2012), and his new one, Tiger Fur, about which Sheryl St. Germain says, "The wildly imaginative poems of Tiger Fur read like burning transcripts of one possessed with the rare gift of pure poetry. The collection is a hymn to desire, and to the ecstasy and pain of love.…"
Tiger Fur's translator, Alexis Levitin, translator of thirty-one books of poetry, whose honors include three Fulbrights and two National Endowments for the Arts Translation Fellowships, will present the English translations.
Kathleen Weaver is a poet and an acclaimed translator from the Spanish. Her translations include Where the Island Sleeps Like a Wing: Selected Poetry, by Nancy Morejón; Nicaraguan Sketches, by Julio Cortázar; and Fire from the Mountain: The Making of a Sandinista, by Omar Cabezas. She is the author of the biographical study Peruvian Rebel: The World of Magda Portal, including translations of Magda Portal's poetry. Kathleen Weaver's debut book of poems, Too Much Happens, was published last year.
