Creepy Nicaraguan Communist Priest Has A New Book Of Creepy Poetry To Be Read At Xavier University

Diocesan Father Ernesto Cardenal, one of the greatest living poets from Latin America, is a priest from Nicaragua. He was an active member of the Sandinista movement. As minister of culture he was also one of three priests to hold a position in the Sandinista government. The Academic Service Learning Semesters and Voices of Solidarity will be hosting a bilingual poetry reading to introduce Fr. Cardenal's latest book: The Origin of Species and Other Poems. The event will take place in the afternoon on April 16th at Xavier University.
