Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, Abigail Parry & Serafina Vick

Manchester Literature Festival presents…                              

Celebrated Cuban writer, Legna Rodríguez Iglesias launches her bi-lingual poetry collection A little body are many parts. Legna has won a number of prestigious national and international prizes including the Premio Paz for her collection, Miami Century Fox. Her intense, often confrontational, poetry irreverently skewers the hypocrisies of the Catholic church, and challenges social mores with an uncomfortable focus on the human body. Legna will read alongside Abigail Parry, who will share English translations of Legna’s poems, and they will be joined in conversation by bridge-translator Serafina Vick. Presented in partnership with the Poetry Translation Centre.
