Readings full of passion, truth and skill to match a time of tumult and reinvention
This week’s woman literary voice belongs to Romanian-American veteran poet and academic Stella Vinițchi Rădulescu. The poet's daughter, Domnica Rădulescu, herself an acclaimed author and professor, reads excerpts from Stella's forthcoming volume with Orison Books, Travelling with the Ghosts.
Stella Vinițchi Rădulescu, Romanian-American poet, Ph.D. in French, is the author of many collections of poetry published in the United States, Romania, and France. She writes poetry in English, French and Romanian and her poems have appeared in a variety of literary magazines in the United States, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Romania. Her most recent volume of poems in French, titled Entre Chien et Loup, was published by L’Harmattan and her most recent volume of poems, titled A Cry in the Snow (from the French Un Cri dans la neige) and translated from the French by Luke Hankins, appeared at Seagull Books in 2019.
Women’s voices dominate the literature written by Romanians in North America. Co-curated with author and academic Cristina A. Bejan, Romanian Women Voices in North America turns the spotlight on this phenomenal wave of creativity and brings together the largest group of Romanian-American and Romanian-Canadian women writers ever assembled in cyberspace.
