As the Macondo Writers’ Workshop, founded by Sandra Cisneros and focused on developing community-minded creative writers, celebrates its 20th anniversary, you’re invited to take part by way of a special reading from esteemed poet Richard Blanco. When he read at Barack Obama’s inauguration, Blanco became the first Latino poet to perform the honor and has received numerous other accolades and recognitions for his works. Those especially jazzed about local literary activities should also plan to attend the free Macondo Writers’ reading on Friday at 7pm (also at Guadalupe Theater).
