Ballad of a Happy Immigrant

Poet in the City & London Unwrapped

Centered around his 2021 collection ‘Ballad of a Happy Immigrant’, we will explore Leo Boix’s arrival in the UK as a young queer man, his relationship with nature and his bilingual existence of English imagination and Spanish language.


Through readings, discussion, live music and film, the event will be a celebration of an important modern-day poet alongside other contemporary Latinx performers, providing audiences the opportunity to experience the United Kingdom as a place of arrival and eventual home.

Leo Boix is a Latinx bilingual poet and translator. A fellow of The Complete Works Poetry, he was awarded the Keats-Shelley Prize in 2019. Born in Argentina, he now divides his time between London and Deal, Kent.
