On October 12, 2006, at 6.00 p.m. I will read my poetry at Tapestry of Voices in Border's Bookstore, downtown Boston. Three other excellent poets will read their poetry too. If you need more details pls see the cites of Tapestry of Voices and/or Ibbetson Street Press.

Since the 12th of October is the DIA DE LA RAZA in Argentina, I'll read some of my poems that speak about the longings of someone like me who was born there and became an American in the United States, particularly in the Village in New York and in Cambridge, MA.

I'll read my poem "SER"= 'TO BE" which won the 1st prize in the International poetry contest OCTAVIO PAZ in 2002. The competitors were more than 100 from Japon, Mexico, United States, Spain, and other countries.

I'll also read my poem "Ivy"= "Hiedra" inspired by the disappeared and tortured in the black years of the dictatorships in Argentina.

PLS COME: I'll be moved if you do. Thks. Beatriz 9/21/06 1.50 p.m.
On Tuesday, 9/19/06, I have the privilege to read in the W. Newton Library the letters that Mary Mann wrote to Domingo Faustino Sarmiento ex president of Argentina. Mary Mann, the wife of Horace Mann the founder of the public education in the United States, was the unconditional friend of D.F. Sarmiento. He modeled the education in Argentina in the public education model of the United States. The poetry of such letters translated by Maria Salome Cardenas is truly outstanding! Read the book, it's great!
