One of the things that I’m looking forward to this month is the arrival of poet Linda Rodriguez from Kansas City. Have a great week and if you have links of news articles you want to share please send them to [email protected] a very intense summer I decided it was necessary to “disconnect” in order to re-energize.We have the honor of featuring her on Monday, October 18 so we hope you will come out and listen to her wonderful work. In the news this week…I was delighted to turn on the TV and see journalists Achy Obejas and Teresa Puente on Chicago Tonight talking about Latino politics. So, I took time to enjoy that gorgeous Harvest moon and rejoice over the arrival of my favorite season.His most recent project focuses on concerns over immigration issues.
Running is her passion and in addition to family and work commitments, in the last year she carved out time to train for today. In 2010 I was honored to partake in hours of collaboration with the wonderful El Stitch y Bitch for the creation of a knitted and crocheted altar dedicated to our crafty ancestors.
The highlight was hearing anchor/reporter Soledad O’Brien give the keynote speech at the Chicago Foundation for Women Luncheon.
The room was packed with 2,000 women from all walks of life and there was such a wonderful buzz of excitement.
I was pleasantly surprised to see another Proyecto Latina favorite, Monique Frausto in that issue, she’s part of a story about Latinos reconnecting with their language and heritage.
And there is also a wonderful article on Concha Buika, that recounts a childhood memory that still haunts her, but taught her to seize the moment each and every time she takes the stage.
