After nearly two decades of attending literary events in San Diego at which I was the only or one of the very few people of color in the room, I finally decided to do something about it. (Certainly took me long enough.) San Diego Beyond the Pale offers six writers of color the chance to take center stage while wipipo and everyone else get to sit down and listen. For a change.
Our Storytelling event features stories of immigration, assimilation, peacemaking and reconciliation in San Diego is part of this year’s https://www.sandiego.gov/public-library/news-events/onebook selection. The event is up on the San Diego Public Library site The event is free and open to the public (of all colors!) and refreshments will be served. Please register at the link below so that we can prepare enough food for all.
