Literati is pleased to be partnering with the Neutral Zone to host poet Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard.

Join us for the release of a poetry book by Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard, Ann Arbor’s Youth Poet Laureate! Aldo’s work explores the intersection of multiple identities and homelands, painting a complex, vulnerable and vivid self-portrait.  Aldo will read from his collection, followed by a Q&A and book signing.
