at Bread & Salt
1955 Julian Ave., SD, CA 92113
We return to live in person readings with feature performances from the co-hosts of Palabra on Zoom, Julie Corrales and myself. It’s been a long hiatus from in person readings and we are eager to see and hear you. The return will be our first reading at our new location Bread & Salt. We are stoked be able to continue this reading and open mic series and to be able to remain in the community of Barrio Logan.
This past 15 months have been difficult for many. Along with the loss of lives there have been many businesses and institutions shuttered. Unfortunately our co-founder La Bodega Gallery is without a brick and mortar location at this time. I thank Chris and Soni for the inspiration and support in the creation and hosting of Palabra. With their encouragement and the encouragement of Julie Corrales I sought a new location. It was a priority to stay in the neighborhood. Thankfully Bread & Salt agreed to host Palabra on the fourth Thursday of the month. Thank you Jim Brown.
This brings me to another change in Palabra. We will now be in person once a month, the fourth Thursday. There is the possibility of being online the second Thursday. I’m not sure about the online part yet but we were able to establish relationships with poets and authors outside of our region during the shutdown using Zoom as our platform and I would like to keep the online community going too. I remain undecided.
Julie Corrales is a first-generation Chicana, an autodidactic chola, political activist, teen-mother, hoochie, feminist, survivor, actively engaged in her own decolonization. Zapoteca by blood, American by her parents’ sweat and tears, she draws on her experiences to advocate for and write about Chicanx issues. As a youth, Julie wrote many melodramatic rhyming love poems, some of which are still in circulation among California inmates. Since then, her essays have been published in the San Diego Union Tribune and La Prensa San Diego, and her poetry has been published in Acentos Review, Anacua Literary Arts Journal, and Azahares Literary Magazine. She performs spoken word at various venues in San Diego.
Ted Washington is an artist, author and the host of Palabra.
Thank you poets, authors and listeners. Without you Palabra does not exist.
