Latino Writers Collective Poetry Reading

Latino Writers Collective Poetry Reading

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word
Six members of the Kansas City, Mo., based Latino Writers Collective will present a poetry reading on Thursday, Feb. 22, starting at 7 p.m. in the McCoy Meetin’ House on Park University’s Parkville Campus. A reception will precede the event at 6:30 p.m. Admission to the reading, a part of the University’s Year of Diversity series of events, is free. The LWC members will read a mix of poetry and fiction, and also share their experiences as Latinos in the U.S. Participating in the readings will be Gloria Adams, Jose Faus and Gabriela Lemmons (reading in English), and Maria Diaz, Marta Silva and Lupita Vargas (reading in Spanish). The Latino Writers Collective provides creative support and coordinates projects to showcase local and national Latino writers, and serves as role models and instruction to Latino youth. Its mission is to foster an environment where the voices of Latino students, blue collar workers, professionals and homemakers can be heard, contributing their experience and vision to the community.
