Women Writers of the Borderlands from Mouthfeel Press

As part of the celebration of Women’s History Month, the El Paso Museum of History will offer a Spotlight on History special program entitled Women Writers of the Borderlands from Mouthfeel Press Thursday evening, March 29, 2012 beginning at 6:30 PM in the museum Seminar Room. This program will feature several local women authors who will perform readings of their poetry. Those featured will be Nancy Lorenza Green, Carolina Monsivais, Robin Scofield, and Maria Miranda Maloney. These poets will discuss writing from the border; how the topography and history of this land shapes their poetics and female perspectives.

Mouthfeel is an indie press located in El Paso, Texas. They publish poetry in English and Spanish by new and established poets. They love innovative, experimental and contemporary poetry with engaging themes such as gender, sex, culture, language, folklore, spirituality, politics and art. They believe writing is activism. They have published the following books: Nancy Lorenza Greens’s Crucified River/ Rio Crucificado, Carolina Monsivais’s Elisa’s Hunger, and Robin Scofield’s And the Ass Saw the Angel.

This program will be free and open to all. Audience participation is welcome.
