Lecturas I. 2015. Performance.
In order to celebrate Hispanic Heritage, Chicago Public Libraries invited artist Luis Mejico to curate a series of readings known as "Lecturas" at select library locations, including the Rudy Lozano and Albany Park branches. The call for submissions asked writers, poets, and performs to submit their own unique experiences living in the city of Chicago as Latinx bodies.
The first reading (as pictured above) took place on September 15, 2015. For this performance, I read my "Red Pants" essay aloud for the first time.
