Poetry Event Tonight

Notice from Jim and Josie (slightly modified by me):

Our guest poet for today, Wednesday, June 18 at Barnes and Noble Fiesta Trails is Grisel. The event is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Grisel is an English Department doctoral student at UTSA who is funded by the Hispanic Leaders in Agriculture and the Environment. This year she was a featured speaker at the Geraldine Dodge Foundation's East Brunswick Poetry Festival in New Jersey , and her work was published in the American Cuban issue of MiPoesias and the Latino/a issue of Pembroke Literary Magazine. Her doctoral research on environments in Caribbean Latino texts has been presented at multiple conferences in 2008 and she also teaches poetry through Gemini Ink, at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center and at UTSA as a creative writing instructor. She is very happy to have met Josie Mixon and to be part of this event.

Hope to see you there,
Jim Brandenburg and Josie Mixon
