Biography

Miguel Algarín is one of the co-founders of the non-profit Nuyorican Poets Café and is Professor Emeritus at Rutgers University. He is the author of more than ten books of poetry, the editor of several anthologies, and an accomplished writer for television and theater. Survival Supervivencia (2009), his most recent work, is a memoir spanning his entire corpus of work over the last thirty-five years. Algarín has received three American Book Awards and the Larry Leon Hamlin Producer's Award. Since its founding in the 1970s, the Nuyorican Poets Café has become widely recognized as a forum for the arts, receiving various honors, including an Obie grant, and serving as a stepping stone for many budding artists.
