host/organizer/curator of Lunada Literary Lounge

I’m very honored that on that stage I’m going to be joined by a very special lady. She is an educator, a writer, singer, performer, organizer, and of course a poet, and runs the Lunada Literary Lounge, a show that changed my life, really. Her name is Sandra García Rivera, she will join me on stage and do a poem, then help me award one of the Local Heroes of the night. With both of us on stage, the Brava Theatre might get too hot and faint from how sexy we both are.


I cannot wait for his poetry to fill the theatre at Brava! GABRIEL CORTEZ
