Diana Bellessi & Leo Boix: To Love A Woman / Amar a una mujer
2:30pm – 3:55pm
Join Argentinian poet Diana Bellessi and translator Leo Boix to celebrate the publication of To Love A Woman with Poetry Translation Centre. Bellessi is a groundbreaking writer who is been credited as the godmother of lesbian poetry in Latin America. Over the decades she has championed feminist and LGBTQI+ issues and themes, and has exerted a strong influence on prominent poets and writers from the 1980’s through to the present day. Many of her poems are only now appearing in English. In this dual language event Bellessi and Boix will be reading from To Love A Woman in the original Spanish with English translations, and discussing her life and work.
