Today I received a postcard announding KSW's 6th annual APAture. Time just flew by. As I glanced through the featured artists I recognized Shailja Patel's name. I had the rarest honor to meet Shailja in San Quentin State Prison about three years ago. She was a performer in the poetry slam that I helped organize. It was at that even that I had the pleasure of tasting her raw and tell-it-to-your-face poetry. She's an awesome poet.
Please don't take my word for it. Go to the literary and performance night on September 24th and enjoy her poetry.
There're many other talented artists featured throughout the APAture event. They're all young Asian Pacific Americans expressing their souls to us. You will not be able to watch them on any mainstream TV programs. Why not watch them live and get a chance to interact with a community of like-minded people?
Please support Kearny Street Workshop and all Asian Pacific American artists. For more information on the featured events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope that I can make it to the 7th annual APAture.
