Queens Poet Laureate Maria Lisella to read at Queens College

Lisella- Writing Your Way Home

Queens Poet Laureate and Queens College alumna Maria Lisella will return to her alma mater on Wednesday for a literary reading.

A travel writer for three decades, Lisella has authored three books of poetry. Born and raised in Queens, she derives her inspiration from the borough’s diversity.

“My work continues to follow the threads of immigration, of inclusiveness, of empty and reminders of where we all came from,” she said.

The event will begin at 12:15 p.m. at the Benjamin Rosenthal Library.

It’s free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
