El Guante and IBé Kaba have now been confirmed for performing at my book release on October 10th! Saymoukda Vongsay will be the MC, and we've got some awesome door prizes coming up too. Yay!
El Guante was recently chosen by the Twin Cities City Pages as the best slam poet of 2009. El Guante's Haunted Studio Apartment is easily one of my favorite spoken word CDs of recent years. I'm always partial to spoken word artists who don't shy away from the working class or the Zombie Apocalypse! You have to hear him to believe it.
From Guinea, West Africa, poet IBé Kaba is the author of “Bridge Across Atlantic,” and he's a deeply talented literary voice in the Minnesota community.
Saymoukda Vongsay is the Lao American author of "No Regrets," and it's always great to have her support. We also have great door prizes coming in and other special treats and refreshments. :)
The book launch is from 5 to 7 at True Colors Bookstore in Minneapolis, on Saturday, October 10th! Looking forward to seeing you there! The True Colors Bookstore is located at 4755 Chicago Ave. South, Minneapolis.
