Speaking Event: A Night of Mind Altering Prose
A Night of Mind Altering Prose
Join Librotraficante Bay Area for an evening of readings from books banned under Arizona’s racist House Bill 2281, which effectively outlawed ethnic studies in publicly funded schools of all levels. HB2281 was approved in the wake of Arizona’s draconian anti-immigrant bill SB 1070. In solidarity with the struggle to defend ethnic studies in Arizona and beyond, Librotraficante founder Tony Diaz will join with Bay Area poets and writers, who will read from their own works as well as books banned under HB 2281.
~ Novelist Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante, leader of The Librotraficante Movement.
~ Poet Librotraficante Lips Mendez, aka Lupe Mendez, one of the original five founders of Librotraficante.
~ Poet Naomi Quiñonez, leader of the Bay Area Librotraficantes
~ Co-founder of Presente.org Roberto Lovato, with original prose.
And more to be announced!
