Palabra An Evening Of Poetry says
La Bodega Gallery presents
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington

Thursday June 8th Adrian Arancibia will be our featured reader. Adrián is an author and critic based in San Diego, California. He is a founder of the seminal Chicano/Latino performance poetry collective Taco Shop Poets. Born in Iquique, Chile (1971), Arancibia is the co-editor of the Taco Shop Poets Anthology: Chorizo Tonguefire (Chorizo Tonguefire Press). He has authored the collection of poetry titled Atacama Poems (City Works Press) and The Keeper/El guardador (Editorial La Ratona Cartonera) and will release another collection of poetry in 2017 titled Poems of Exhaustion (Parentheses Press). A Literature Ph.D., he currently works as a professor of English and Creative Writing at Miramar Community College. His creative work depicts and comments on the lives of immigrants, while his critical work focuses on literature and its relation to social spaces and popular culture.

After Adrián's reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read. Everyone is welcome to come and share a poem, song lyrics, reading or a short story or just bring your ears for listening and enjoy the evening. Original poetry is always appreciated. Everyone needs some place to speak their minds and Palabra is that place. We are an inclusive and supportive group that aim to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment, so all talent levels are welcome.

Doors open at 6:30pm and Poetry starts at 7:00pm sharp! We will have a sign-up sheet available at the counter. Each poet will speak for 3-5 minutes each so that everyone who wants to read can have a chance! Palabra poetry night will be every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
