Juan Matos with Hudson Review Journal
Hudson Review Visit
Please watch poet, Rhina P. Espaillat explain the beginnings of poetry as an art form.
Liberty High School Academy for Newcomers has a partnership with the Hudson Review Journal. This partnership has allowed our students to read and analyze literary fiction and then meet the author. This year's visit was from Rhina P. Espaillat who has published several original poems and has translated works into Spanish as well as into English. This academic school year, the Advanced Placement Spanish Culture and Language and the Spanish II class were invited to read her works and ask questions. Thank You Ms. Espaillat!
