Cancion favorita de Palosanto y para celebrar que voy a ver el maestro en vivo en sept!
Everyone has their memory about the moment they realized stories took place in neighborhoods like theirs, to people that looked and sounded like them. Before that moment, you are an outsider – non-existent almost, because neither tragedies nor comedies happen to people like you – a voyeur peeking into the place where the imagination plays. But after that moment you ascend into the company of those that are worthy of being dreamt about. It’s when you see yourself reflected in the books you love so much, it’s then that you are conjured into existence.
VONA has made me a better writer and given me community. If you enjoy reading, writing, want to see more diverse books on your shelf tomorrow, if you support places of learning, if you’ve ever read anything I’ve written and enjoyed it, if you just got paid…DONATE. $5, $10, $15, $20. It can mean the world for a writer this summer.
