The lovely Afro-Futurist literary and performance collective, Solar Throat, has invited me to read with them this Sunday night (5/4) at Habesha in North East Portland. We’ll meet around 7:30 to eat and chat, and start performing at 8 p.m, and of course it’s free and open to the public, and that means you.
What is Solar Throat? Well, it was started by fellow Portlander Jamondria Harris, a local poet and performance artist. It’s more interactive than a reading, but definitely not as interactive as a video game. Feel free to read up on it at the official Solar Throat page, or even better, show up and learn for yourself. I’ll be sharing my work along side local writers Sidony O’neal, Galadriel Rhodora, and of course, Jamondria herself.
It’ll be a busy day for me as well, as I’m hosting the Oregon Writers of Color first anthology meeting at the Behind the Museum Cafe the same day (5/4) at 1 p.m. Fellow OWOC member and graphic novelist Cathy Camper should be there too. We’ll be on the look out for anthology editors, submissions readers, artists, and writers.
Hope to see some of you there, hopefully at both!
