Suzanne Frischkorn was born in Hialeah, Florida to a Cuban father and an American mother of Spanish descent. She is the author of four chapbooks, most recently, Spring Tide, selected by Mary Oliver for the Aldrich Poetry Award. Her poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies including Indiana Review's Latina & Latino Writers, Margie, 88, Poet Lore, and Conversation Pieces: Poems That Talk to Other Poems, part of the Everyman's Library Pocket Series, (Knopf, 2007). She is the recipient of a 2007 Artist Fellowship from the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism.

Coya Paz is a dramaturg, editor, director, performer and is a principal with both Teatro Luna and Proyecto Latina. Teatro Luna is Chicago’s first and only all-Latina theater company. The company approaches their work as artists from the perspective that stories matter, that our stories matter, and that our stories represent histories beyond our individual lives that are not often heard. Proyecto Latina is a monthly open stage co-hosted by Teatro Luna, Tianguis Books, Mariposa Atomica Ink, offering a supportive public space for Latina artists of all kinds to share their work.

To make this an even more compelling evening of poetry, the traditional open mic, will be handled by Tia Chucha Press, Momotombo Press and MARCHAbrazo Press

Very cool; I wish I could be there! And hey, I was born in Miami, though my father was American (of Scottish descent, way back when) and my mother was Swedish.

Thanks you two! And look at that Simmons, two far flung Floridians, that's a small world.

Hey:

I must have been unconscious. I didn't know you were Cuban--and Spanish.

How cool!
