Visitors from the University of Zagreb

Croatian guests to UCF
Six Croatian students and professor visit UCF

Not long ago, UCF’s McNair Program hosted visitors from the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Organization and Informatics Varaždin.  They packed in a lot during their stay including an undergraduate research conference in Jacksonville, the Information Fluency Conference at UCF, trips to the Kennedy Space Center, St. Augustine, South Beach and, of course, Harry Potter World at Universal. 

I presented them with the first copies of my CD, Everyday Chica, Music and More and a copy of the chapbook of poems Everyday Chica.  Soon you will be able to get your hands on the CD; it will be available on Amazon.  It includes all the poems from the chapbook in addition to some other works–all set to Caribbean music (Cuban and Puerto Rican mostly).  It includes “Muchacha” from the Norton Anthology of Latino Literature and my Marielitos, Balseros and Other Exiles.  There are also two bonus tracks of originals by Jorge and Kevin, my musical collaborators and awesome duo of Kimbombo.  I will upload a clip soon so check back!

Thank you to Professor Violeta Vidacet-Hains for sharing this photo which can be found on their blog–lots of photos there too.
