Mark Tardi has a MFA from Brown University. Tardi is a poet and a Polish translator. His interest in his Polish heritage led him to become a 2008–2009 Fulbright Senior Lecturer in American Literature and Culture at the University of Lódz, Poland where he still works. You can learn more about Tardi and read two of his poems at his Poetry Foundation biography.
The event is free and open to the public.
