Santa Fe, NM

Open House/Benefit Reading
5 PM - 8 PM

Fellow Macondista Margo Chavez has graciously agreed to host what I hope will be a new Letras Latinas tradition: an annual "salon" in a private home---for the purpose of hearing live literature in a more intimate setting, in this case in a cool space in Santa Fe, NM.

This inaugural occasion is also going to serve as an opportunity to raise some money to help underwrite Letras Latinas' various projects and initiatives. We'll have a videographer and photographer on hand so we'll be able to share some images, moving and still, with readers of this blog, and use it---the video and photos---as an occasion to seek your collaboration, however modest, as well as help from the community-at-large.

Gabe and Michelle have agreed to give two brief readings during the course of the evening. They are also serving, in effect, as direct ambassadors of three Letras Latinas initiatives---those they been directly involved with:

Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize
Momotombo Press
Letras Latinas Residency Fellowship

We're entering uncharted waters. The least we expect is to eat, drink, hear some lit---in short: enjoy good company.
