French-American poetry in April

In honor of the American National Poetry Month and the French Printemps des Poetes, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Chicago presents encounters, cross-cultural readings, lectures and translation seminars.

These events are dedicated to French and American contemporary poetry. We are lucky to have the participation of French poets: Jean-Michel Espitallier, Sabine Macher, Yves di Manno, Nicolas Pesques, and American poets Jerome Rothenberg, Cole Swensen, Guy Bennett and Simone Forti.
