Post Book Fair Panel Sentimientos
I want to drop a big thank you to Virginia Escalante, professor and director of the San Diego City College International Book Fair. The event was marvelous. To see Wanda Coleman, Austin Straus, and Luis Rodriguez consecutively on Sat. was some cool hours spent. I also want to thank Angel Sandoval, currently a San Diego State University MFA candidate, for organizing the panel, and for delivering an awesome reading and presentation. As a fellow Imperial Valleyite, I am very proud of the work he's doing. It was also great to read with Manuel Velez, a poet and professor whose collection Bus Stop and Other Poems, has been a book that I've periodically returned to/to see how it's done.
