Highly acclaimed poet, actress and translator, Hélène Cardona will be featured in a reading at Book Soup in West Hollywood on September 24th at 4pm. The reading will be hosted by Poet Laureate, Kim Dower and will also feature University of Nebraska MFA instructor and poet, Teri Youmans Grimm and bestselling author, Pope Brock.

Born in Paris and raised all over Europe before settling in the US, Cardona earned her MA in American Literature at the Sorbonne. She is the author of 6 books, most recently the bilingual collections Life in Suspension, called “a vivid self-portrait as scholar, seer and muse” by John Ashbery, and Dreaming My Animal Selves, described by David Mason as “liminal, mystical and other-worldly.” Cardona’s luminous poetry, hailed as visionary by Richard Wilbur, explores consciousness, the power of place, and ancestral roots. It is poetry of alchemy and healing, a gateway to the unconscious and the dream world. Her translations include Beyond Elsewhere (Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac), winner of a Hemingway Grant; Ce que nous portons (Dorianne Laux); Walt Whitman’s Civil War Writings for WhitmanWeb, and Birnam Wood (José Manuel Cardona). Acting credits include ChocolatJurassic WorldDawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Hundred-Foot Journey
