Joyce Ashuntantang, associate professor of English in Hillyer College and an internationally acclaimed poet, will hold a reading and lead a poetry workshop as part of this month's "Hartford Loves Poetry" festival.

The program will take place on Monday, April 14, from 5:30 to 7:15 p.m., at the Hartford Public Library's Mark Twain Branch,  located at Hartford Public High School (55 Forest St., Hartford).

"Hartford Loves Poetry" is a two-week festival (April 7–19) celebrating National Poetry Month. During the festival, each of Hartford Public Library's 10 branches is hosting a different poet who will recite their work, lead a free workshop on writing poetry, and  hold an open microphone session where members of the public can read their own poems.

The culminating event of the festival will take place on Saturday, April 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the downtown Hartford Public Library (500 Main St., Hartford), where two dozen people will read poems in 20 different languages. At that event, Ashuntantang will read a poem in Kenyang, one of the languages of her native Cameroon.
