On Sunday afternoon, November 13 from 2:00 to 5:00, virtuoso versifier Victor Hernández Cruz will be our special guest at the Harlem Arts Salon. He will be talking with Quincy Troupe about the craft of poetry and all that inspired Cruz’s newest volume of poems, In the Shadow of Al-Andalus. Whether you’re a bibliophile, scholar, corporate suit, aspiring wordsmith or culture junkie, drop in and mix and mingle with like-minded folks for an afternoon of intellectual stimulation, delectable eats, and bright spirits.
