Feria del Libro 2019. Aguascalientes, Mexico
Mexico's oldest literary festival
As a journalist and educator, I'm very passionate about cultural exchange, literacy, and education. In 2019, I had the opportunity to host and produce the world's first multi-lingual marathon reading of Whitman's "Song of Myself" (read in seven languages!) alongside the Walt Whitman Initiative (NY). I brought along world-renowned Whitman scholars for panel discussions and cultural activities, as well as conducted creative writing workshops for both adults and children. Bringing the words of the "Father of American Poetry" to the incredible city of Aguascalientes was and will always be one of the creative highlights of my life.
