Many thanks to Brenda Nettles Riojas of CorazÃ³n BilingÃ¼e for this awesome clip of the CantoMundo 2011 Fellows Reading.
It was a real pleasure co-hosting this event with Amalia Ortiz and presenting the diverse work of all our fellow poetas to a packed house at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center in Austin. Looking forward to hearing the next part of the clip with the rest of the fellows.
For those keeping score at home, you can hear me read “Barry Bonds on the Witness Stand” at the 10:43 mark quickly followed up by Diego BÃ¡ez doing a cover of my poem, “I’m Jus Askin.”
