Speaker: Viviana Hall
Topic: Poems of Love
April is National Poetry Month, reminding us that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters in our lives.
Our speaker will be our very own Viviana Hall, who will do her presentation and a poetry reading from her recently published book, Poems of Love, which has received acclaim. Pacific Book Review’s Alyssa Avina had this to say, “In author Viviana Hall’s Poems of Love, the poet translates the language of love through a bilingual poetry book. A native of Argentina, the writer translates her poetry from Spanish into English, conveying love in the form of compassion, a joy for the love that life brings us, and the transformative nature of love as a whole.”
Viviana Hall is an American writer, journalist, and clinical social worker. Her first book “Miedos” was published in her native Buenos Aires in 1977. Thereafter, she came to New York as a press correspondent, wherein 1982 a new edition of “Miedos” and her second book “Poemas del Cielo y la Tierra” were published.
As a journalist, she produced, wrote, and hosted various television documentaries, variety, and public service programs in New York. Her media work earned her numerous distinguished awards. As a writer, she was published locally and abroad.
As a clinical social worker, Ms. Hall collaborated with The State of New York to implement programs to create opportunities for underprivileged youth.
Viviana is passionate about life which she says is all about love in its multiple manifestations. “My passion in life is to see a world in harmony, one in which every human being without distinctions can prosper.”
