Romeu’s dual-language poetry reading Thursday to transport to Cuba, Tau Ceti
Lovers of poetry will be transported Thursday at a dual-language reading by poet, teacher and journalist Emma Romeu, whose latest work, “Renovación de la luna” (“Renovation of the Moon”) looks at her feelings about love; Cuba, her original country; nature; and even takes off to the distant star Tau Ceti.
Each of the book’s 58 poems are presented side by side with translations by Michael L. Glenn, and Glenn will be by her side again Thursday for the English-Spanish reading at an entirely appropriate venue: Schoenhof’s Foreign Books, 76A Mount Auburn St., Harvard Square.
Romeu, of Arlington, has published with editorial houses in Spain, Mexico and the United States and has been published as a journalist in newspapers and magazines including National Geographic, Integral, Etnoecologica, El Nacional and Biodiversitas. She teaches at the Berklee College of Music.
The free reading starts at 6 p.m. Thursday. Light refreshments will be served.
