EL MUSEO LATINO
I was invited to read from my work at El Museo Latino in Omaha, a museum that started a new speakers program this year. I was scheduled to read with Marjorie Saiser, NE poet. It was close enough to Mothers Day that I chose that theme and read from different pieces that touched on mothers/grandmothers. Interesting that Marjorie also chose the same theme so we dovetailed together in fine form. More interesting to me was the fact that the audience was not Mexican American as I'd assumed it would be. Ah, assumptions, there's a saying about that. By the way, there was a great photography exhibit by the great-niece of Frida Kahlo.
