Seattle Arts & Lectures says
In preparation for Claudia Rankine's upcoming events at Seattle Arts and Lectures and UW Bothell, you are invited to the first of two conversations about "Citizen," moderated by C. Davida Ingram and Claudia Castro Luna. We invite participants to come having read the book and ready to discuss it. Free and open to the public.

C. Davida Ingram received the 2014 Stranger Genius Award in Visual Arts. She is an artist who combines writing and curating to create counter-narratives about Otherness and identity. She works within museums and community spaces to explore the intersections of social practice and social justice. She is the co-founder of the Seattle People of Color Salon, and has been involved with many community-based arts organizations including Video Machete, Women in the Director’s Chair, and Insight Arts. Her recent projects include I Wish a Motherf***** Would, stereoTYPE, and The Deeps (with composer Hanna Benn). She is Public Engagement Programs Manager at Seattle Public Libraries.

Claudia Castro Luna is Seattle’s Civic Poet, the recipient of a King County 4Culture grant and a Jack Straw Fellow. Born in El Salvador she came to the United States in 1981. She has an MA in Urban Planning, a teaching certificate and an MFA in poetry from Mills College. Her poems have appeared in Milvia Street, Riverbabble, City Arts and Taos Journal of Poetry and Art, among others. She is working on a memoir about her experience escaping the Salvadoran Civil War; an excerpt of it appears in the 2014 Jack Straw Writers Anthology. Living in English and Spanish, Claudia writes and teaches in Seattle where she gardens and keeps chickens with her husband and their three children.
