Poetry, Book Fesitval, music and more
The first UCF Book Festival was a grand success–I was very impressed with the turn out, exhibit hall, organization and quality of the panels. Many congratulations to all of the organizers and I’m already looking for to next year’s!
Tomorrow morning, I will be performing poems from my forthcoming chapbook (small book of poems) at the downtown Orange County Public Library. And not just reading . . . I will be accompanied by the wonderful music of Conjunto Kimbombo made up of two of my favorite guys–Jorge Milanés and Kevin Meehan. Stop by and afterwards you can go to the Lake Eola Earth Day Celebration.
POETRY TO THE SOUND OF CONJUNTO KIMBOMBO. “Conjunto Kimbombo will provide the musical accompaniment to the poetry of Cecilia Rodríguez Milanés. The spoken word performance will touch on various themes in contemporary Cuban and Cuban American culture but will also include themes from American political and popular culture.”
Date: April 24, 11:30 a.m.
Location: Orlando Public Library, 101 E. Central Blvd, Orlando.
