Ricardo Maldonado: A look back as he paves a new path forward

Congratulations to Ricardo Maldonado, the first Latino Executive Director & President of Academy of American Poets! After his stellar tenure as the co-director of 92NY’s Unterberg Poetry Center in New York City, we are thrilled by the news of his new position at the Academy. In celebration of Maldonado's first day in his new role at the Academy, we encourage you to revisit his discussion with Yvette Siegert for Curated Conversation(s) about his debut collection, The Life Assignment, which Publisher's Weekly gave a starred review and described as a "...quietly furious bilingual debut, Maldonado challenges the entanglements of power, queer love, money, and language against the backdrop of a post-hurricane Puerto Rico and a life of daily labor in New York City."
