Aunt Lute authors Nancy Agabian and Emma Pérez will be reading at the 2012 Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) annual conference in Chicago on the “Ancestors; A Queer Writers of Color Reading” panel. As described by the organizers Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán and Tony Valenzuela, “‘Ancestors: A Queer Writers of Color Reading’ is a literary reading featuring same-gender-loving, multiple-gender-loving, and transgender poets, non/fiction writers, filmmakers, and performance artists of Indigenous Pacific, Native North American, Arab/Middle Eastern, Asian, Latina/o, and African descent.”
The free event is sponsored by the Lambda Literary Foundation, and will be held Thursday, March 1, from 7-10pm at the Irving Harris Family Foundation Reception Hall in the Center on Halsted. Jo Scott-Coe will also be reading at AWP. For more details about “Ancestors,” visit the facebook event page.
