Articulations: A VONA Faculty of Color Reading

When: Thu., June 28, 7 p.m. 2012

Every summer, writers of color convene at Voices of Our Nations Arts (VONA), a summer workshop designed for writers to inspire and learn from each other in a supportive environment. Co-founded by Mills College professor Elmaz Abinader in 1999 and including fiction, poetry, and memoir workshops as well as specialized classes in political and LGBTQ-specific writing, VONA lures renowned writers to share from their knowledge and experience, and signs off with a free public reading. This year's meritorious group includes Faith Adiele, Mat Johnson, Randall Kenan, MaazaMentiste, M. Evelina Galang, and more; the workshop takes place at Cal all week, but a special faculty reading on Thursday, June 28, happens at Berkeley City College (2050 Center St., Berkeley). 7 p.m., free. 510-214-2010 or
