Our first interview is with Leslie Barry, along with Professor Jonathan Mayhew, who will be presenting a free public lecture tonight at the Hilliard Art Museum called "The Cultural Geographies of Lorca: from Translation to Musical Adaptation."

Federico García Lorca was a major European modernist. Best known internationally as a poet, he was also an important playwright and literary theorist, as well as a visual artist, musician and stage director. He spent time in New York and in translation, is an important figure in the development of modernist writing in the U.S. and worldwide.
