Lorca in New York: A Celebration is the largest-ever festival in North America celebrating the work of acclaimed Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca. With more than two dozen events throughout Manhattan, it focuses on the brief but prolific period (1929-1930), during which Lorca came to New York and wrote one of his most significant works, Poet in New York. Presented by Fundación Federico García Lorca with support from Acción Cultural Española, it is anchored in the premiere of Back Tomorrow: Federico García Lorca / Poet in New York at The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (April 5-July 20) – an exhibition bringing together for the first time manuscripts, drawings, letters, and photos Lorca generated while in the city. It is also timed with the release of Farrar, Straus and Giroux’s new, enhanced edition of Poet in New York. Don’t miss this festival, which marks the first time in more than 25 years that the city pays tribute to Lorca on a grand scale.
