Norma Alarcón's Birthday Bash and TWP Fundraiser
You may have already heard, but if you haven't: Third Woman Press is making a comeback! We want to honor the woman who started it all back in 1979 in Bloomington, Indiana--Norma Alarcón. And what better time of the year than on her birthday!
Come celebrate with us as we honor Dr. Alarcón on her special day and raise funds to revitalize the Press, which has been integral to women of color writing, art, and activism.
This party has been thoughtfully organized as a feminist-of-color-centered event. Doors open at 7 p.m. Arrive early to delight your taste buds with comfort foods catered by local restaurants and a local tamalera. Local poets Bonnie Cisneros, Sandra Cisneros, Anel Flores, Laurie Ann Guerrero, Joe Jimenez, Dee Murff, Carmen Tafolla, and Quiet Storm will practice transgressions with their words beginning at 7:30 pm. DJ Despeinada will be spinning tracks for a baile around 9 pm.
To ensure we meet our local fundraising goal ($1K), we will be selling out-of-print books published by Third Woman Press.
