Víctor Rodríguez Núñez is one of the most renowned Cuban poets writing today. He has published eleven poetry collections, the most recent of which, The Infinite’s Ash, has been translated into English by Katherine Hedeen.

His awards include the David Prize (Cuba, 1980), the Plural Prize (Mexico, 1983), the EDUCA Prize (Costa Rica, 1995), the Renacimiento Prize (Spain, 2000), the Fray Luis de León Prize (Spain, 2005) and the Leonor Prize (Spain, 2006). His poems have appeared in literary journals throughout the world. He is an Associate Professor of Spanish at Kenyon College, Ohio. USA.

This is a rare opportunity to experience Rodríguez Núñez’s poetry in Spanish and English, followed by a discussion of his work in conversation with Birmingham poet Charlie Jordan and a book signing.
