7th International Multicultural-Multilingual Poetry Reading in Fredericton

Janet, emcee, and Nela Rio, founder and organizer of the 7th International Multicultural-Multilingual Poetry Reading. The reading & exhibit happened in the Multipurpose Room of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.

This year's celebration of World Poetry Day with a reading and poster poem exhibit featured poets and members of the community reading in many languages: Spanish, French, Portuguese, Mandarin, Japanese, English, German and Polish. Far and away, the largest number of poems were in Spanish by writers from outside of Fredericton.
