Three Friends Coffee House, 201 SE Ash Street, Portland
Please join Joanne Mulcahy and Cindy Williams Gutiérrez with musician Gerardo Calderón for a literary event that celebrates women as ritual healers in Mexican and Mexican American culture. Mulcahy will read from her recently published book, Remedios: The Healing Life of Eva Castellanoz. Gutiérrez will perform her poems inspired by healers and the women in her life and by the “flower and song” of the ancient Aztecs. Calderón will accompany Cindy’s Aztec-inspired poems on pre-Hispanic instruments. It will be an evening of story and testimonio, and poetry and music.
