So, Profesora Gutiérrez y Muhs is going to be doing a public poetry reading! If you have not had the pleasure of hearing her beautiful word stories, you are in for a real treat. I was fortunate enough to take a class with Profe at Seattle U-- she is truly an inspiration to all and is kind enough to let all the poor Latinitas flock around her for a mentor. Honestly, this woman is responsible for getting me into grad school and inspiring me to work harder on my poetry.
I am definitely going (assuming I can get in!)-- this is a great event to celebrate Dia de los Muertos and Latin@ culture in the area as well, so please come enjoy the evening if you have the time.
In preparation for Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead, ArtXchange Gallery hosts a reading by Wendy Call, Catalina M. Cantú, Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs, and Christina Montilla , four women writers from La Sala Seattle. Come enjoy literary remembrances and hear live music by Japanese/Latin fusion duo Miho and Diego. Dia de los Muertos-related activities, art and food will round out the event. Attendees are encouraged to bring a photo of a woman they would like to honor for a remembrance altar. Music begins at 6pm, reading begins at 7pm.
RSVP Requested, but Drop-Ins Welcome.
