Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard is Ann Arbor’s Youth Poet Laureate. He was the feature poet for Poetry Night in Ann Arbor, and a member of the 2018 Ann Arbor slam team. He is currently studying vocal performance and civil engineering at U of M, and he spends a lot of his time at the Neutral Zone performing and engaging other artists.
He is releasing a poetry book that vulnerably explores the intersection of his identities as an Afro-Cuban born and raised in Ann Arbor. At the event, he will read from his collection, answer questions, and sign his books.
I think it will be really inspiring to meet a fellow undergrad who is fulfilling my personal dream of publishing a book. Come out and support him!
