Cinco Minutos with You!

Thank you to everyone who attended last night's monthly meeting of "Cinco Minutos with You." It was one of our largest gatherings and everyone afterwards kept commenting that the stories and poems read were some of the most beautiful writings they have heard!

The picture at the top of the page shows almost everyone who read last night--(Kneeling) Lourdes Nunez, (Left to Right) Bertha Jacobson, Maria G. Madrid, Jose Caraballo, Mary Lou Barrera, Robert Garcia, Martha Curcio and Sandy Garcia. The other photo shows our youngest participant in "Cinco Minutos with You" ever! It is Alejandra Wagnon, age 7. She introduced herself to the group and stated "I want to be a writer when I grow up." We are very happy that she picked us for one of her first public readings!

Our next monthly meeting is Monday, May 12, at the Barnes and Noble (San Pedro Crossing) at 7:30 p.m. and it will feature Jhon Alexander Ruiz Marin, who will speak to us about his writing techniques, his experiences with Trafford Publishing and his experiences as a POW while serving his country of Columbia.
