Gregg and the Gang


Last month the Twig Book Shop hosted the release of Gregg Barrios’ newest book of poetry, La Causa. The collection of work is a powerful testament of the Chicano Movement. Barrios invited local literary and theater luminaries to read selections from La Causa, and his previous collection of poetry, Puro Rollo. In September, Barrios and the gang invaded Krazy Vatos Emporium for a similar reading, featuring the likes of Carmen Tafolla and Anthony Flores as documented by our very own Contemporary Xicana. The following clips feature local poet Trey Moore and actor Rick Frederick reading Barrios' works.
