Achiote Press Reading at Acentos

*

so last week tuesday, Rich Villar & the kind folks at ACENTOS shared their reading space in the Bronx with Achiote Press. it was a wonderful event; one of the most fun and friendly readings i’ve ever been to. one of the coolest parts was their open mic, featuring a few Acentos regulars as well as Rigoberto Gonzalez, Sheryl Luna, and Erika Wurth. i kept thinking, damn, this is the best open mic ever!

the featured readers of the night were two achiote press authors: Javier Huerta and Marina Garcia-Vasquez. they did a wonderful job reading and after we all went to a tasty restaurant in the east village after. all in all, a great way to kick off AWP.

  3. The Acentos reading in the south Bronx was a great way to kick off the AWP week, which included an elegant tribute to Tato Laviera and Sandra Maria Esteves at Mojitos in the Harlem Barrio and an amazing marathon reading at Hunter college.

    Happy Birthday Craig.

    I wish you would have used a photo of Marina reading instead of me. She’s much more beautiful.
