Our first venture into staging a reading as part of San Francisco's Litcrawl 2019 was a success! Tales of healing, of resistance and witnessing revived la misión and reaffirmed the Mexican American presence in the embattled heart of the Mission District, the long-time center of the Latino community.
Thanks to LitQuake, which sponsors Litcrawl, to the Beauty Bar on Mission Street which hosted us, and to Lisa Gray for facilitating our participation. And to Scott Duncan Fernandez for being the MC.
See the videos below to share the works of the readers, writers we’ve featured in Somos en escrito: Maria Nieto, Michelle Wallace, Jesús Mena and Armando Rendón.
