José Martí Weekend at Governor’s Island

This past weekend the Empire State Center for the Book hosted a weekend in honor of José Martí on Governor’s Island. It was wonderful to see José Martí honored among so many other great New Yorkers, particularly since he himself visited Governor’s Island and wrote about it. It was especially nice to meet Anne Fountain, whose translation of Versos sencillos I have always loved!
