Writers Against Domestic Violence – 100 Thousand Poets for Change

Friday, Mar. 27, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Cry of the Nightbird is a collection of prose and poetry pieces of a hidden tragedy: violence in homes, living in fear, and forced silence. Authors from every walk of life and every aspect of this difficult issue raise their voices as one to end this silence, to bring freedom and release for themselves and others. These words will inform and inspire readers: give them eyes to see, a way to express, and motivation to act.

Kalia Mussetter, Diane Madrigal, Spirette Dotter, Dianna Grayer (performing with Sheridan Gold on drums/wooden flute) and Michelle Wing (a co-editor of the collection) will read their pieces. Ann Hutchinson (a co-editor) will MC. There will also be music, TBA.

$5 minimum purchase required to support the venue – teas, wine, beer, juices, chai, etc.; vegetarian buffet dinner available

Congratulations to Ivonne Sanchez Barea for making Granada, Spain the first Spanish language city to be named City of Literature by UNESCO!

Dear friends and subscribers, supporters, and all those that joined the campaign for the City of GRANADA to become part of the circuit of UNESCO as capital of the Creative Cities Network.

On December 1, 2014, the City of Granada was named Capital of Literature.

It is the first Spanish language speaking city to be appointed, and this will be for the benefit of culture, poetry, literature and all cultural expression.

All your contributions have helped make this dream a reality.
Congratulations to GRANADA and to all.
Thanks for your help and support!

Ivonne Sanchez Barea- Organizer: 100TPC Granada
