O, Miami presents a special evening with Juan Felipe Herrera, the first Hispanic Poet Laureate of the United States.
Guests sit on ON-STAGE with Herrera at New World Symphony Hall in an original and intimate "live-taping" of a POETRY FILM. The footage from the evening will later be Wall-casted during O, Miami 2016 and presented around the world.
The theme of the evening is "Casita de Colores," a Miami version of Herrera's project to create a crowd-sourced poem involving as many Americans as possible during the period of his Laureateship.
In addition to Herrera, a selection of local youth poets and other original Miami acts will read, ensuring that there is no way this reading could take place anywhere else in the world but Miami.
SEATING IS EXTREMELY LIMITED! Please purchase your type of ticket ($12, $25, or $45 donation) based on your ability. All proceeds go to helping O, Miami produce more poetry.
We can't wait to share this celebration of our hometown culture with you.
