Jorge Pech Casanova, Claudia Castro Luna, Fulgencio Lazo
This evening, if all goes to plan, will bring artists across borders and would-be walls, from near and far, and in varying mediums, to be presented bilingually in Spanish and English. From Oaxaca, we are delighted to host essayist, journalist, and documentary filmmaker Jorge Pech Casanova for a screening of his newest documentary La marcha de los diez mil (The March of Ten Thousand), about the exodus of Central Americans through Mexico in October of 2018. He will be joined here by Seattle artist and Oaxacan native Fulgencio Lazo, who will present his beautiful new art book, Song for Migrant Children. Also part of the evening is Claudia Castro Luna, presently Washington State’s Poet Laureate, herself a native of El Salvador, the author most recently of Killing Marías (Two Sylvias). She will read newer work on borders, migration, refugees. Please join us for this special evening. Por favor únete a nosotros para esta noche especial.
