Inaugural poet, Richard Blanco, comes to Syracuse

The fifth inaugural poet in history will be speaking at Hendricks Chapel at Syracuse University on December 15.
 

Richard Blanco is the first Latino immigrant poet chosen to read at an inauguration and also the youngest. Just a couple of months before his birth, Richard’s mother exiled from Cuba to Spain. Shortly after his birth, Richard and his family arrived in the United States. Richard received a degree in Civil Engineering and a Masters Degree in Fine Arts in Creative Writing.
Richard Blanco is performing at Hendricks Chapel on December 15 at 2pm with proceeds benefiting the Building Futures Foundation and the Arc of Onondaga Foundation. Both foundations help to support programs and services for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities in Madison, Cortland, and Onondaga counties.

General admission tickets for the event are $20 each and may be purchased at http://arcfoundation.brownpapertickets.com/   

Patron tickets to attend a Meet and Greet reception at noon prior to the performance as well as priority seating at the reading are $75 

For more information and to purchase patron tickets contact Arc of Onondaga Foundation at (315) 476-7441 ext.1103 or Building Futures Foundation at (315) 363-3389 x 1005.
