Vera Sanchez Features at Palabra!
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington
Featured reader is Vera Sanchez
Veracruz Pedroza Sánchez was born in San Diego and grew up in Logan Heights. She earned her B.A. in Education and M.A. in Education from San Diego State University and is currently teaching English at Grossmont College. Her first novel, Prison Letters: Walking to Honor won the 2014 Beverly Hills Award for Best Multicultural Non-Fiction. Sanchez’s sophomore novel, Puto, reminds women not to understate their power in a relationship and when searching for love, one must learn to love themselves first.
After the featured 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.
