Leonel Alvarado

From Standing Room Only, 2:38 pm on 14 December 2014

Poet Leonel Alvarado was born in Honduras, lived in the US and now calls New Zealand home. He moved here more than a decade ago to lecture at Massey University in Palmerston North. Now he's published his first collection of poetry written in English, Driving with Neruda. Leonel's two previous collections were written in Spanish but this time, because he's writing about his impressions of Aotearoa, he felt it had to be English.
