The John Ashbery Poetry Series Presents Celebrated Poet Roberto Tejada at Bard College on Thursday, April 14

ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.— On Thursday, April 14, celebrated poet and art critic Roberto Tejada, author of works including Mirrors for Gold and Exposition Park, will read from his work at Bard College. The reading is presented by the John Ashbery Poetry Series. Poet Alan Gilbert says, “Tejada’s work is with dismantling borders and upsetting classifications. The result is a layered poetry that finds its form in dense stanzas composed of lines that frequently veer toward a kind of fractured prose.” Introduced by Ann Lauterbach, David and Ruth Schwab Professor of Languages and Literature at Bard, this event takes place at 6:00 p.m. in the Bard Chapel of the Holy Innocents. It is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations are required.
