The activities will be held in universities, colleges, squares, theaters and cultural auditoriums to give an "unprecedented scope" to Ecuadorian and Ibero-American poetry.
This year, the already prestigious Poet of Two Hemispheres Award will be presented to the Filipino-Spanish singer-songwriter and artist Luis Eduardo Aute, who will present his anthology of poem and songs. The award ceremony and the presentation of the anthology "From a time to this part" will take place on Monday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m. in Quito at the Prometheus Theater of the House of Ecuadorian Culture.
