SPRING’S BLUE RIBBON, edited by poet Gino Leineweber, is the fourth international poetry anthology published by Verlag Expeditionen, Germany. The publishing house presents an extraordinary project in which worldwide poets have participated. The poetry collection contains 61 poets from 20 countries on five continents. With its different cultural and personal imprints, the range of poetry is unique and provides a profound insight into contemporary, lyrical work. Each poem is printed in mother-tongue and English and is likewise performed in the reading series. Anyone who has heard such multilingual readings knows how special it is to listen to a poem recited in a foreign language, even if you don’t understand it; the sound and rhythm of the language are always an experience.
The readings will be broadcast via Facebook and recorded to be available later on YouTube and the publisher’s website.
