Poet will give virtual reading at Ivoryton Library

Award-winning poet Luisa Caycedo-Kimura

Award-winning poet Luisa Caycedo-Kimura will give a virtual reading for Ivoryton Library at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept 27.

Caycedo-Kimura, a former attorney, was born in Colombia, and is a frequent moderator of the Connecticut Poetry Society’s Poets on Poetry series. She has been awarded, among other honors, a John K. Walsh Residency Fellowship at the Anderson Center at Tower View, an Adrienne Reiner Hochstadt Fellowship at Ragdale, and a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship in Poetry.

Her work has also been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and has appeared in The Cincinnati Review, Sunken Garden Poetry 1992-2011, RHINO, Diode, Shenandoah, Mid-American Review, Nashville Review, among other publications.

While the library can’t yet host in-person events, said Elizabeth Alvord, librarian, “virtual programming does allow people to join us from further away, both our speakers and our attendees.”
