Yes, this is unprecedented amor: a San Fran Northern Califas Homey author professor discussing literature, poetry, vida loca, and Pura Neta with a respected award-winning So Cal Xicanx writer, activist, and loved one, Luis Rodriguez. Imagination and wisdom are beyond borders, make-believe walls that keep us separated and distracted from what is really going on.
More than ever, now is the time for gente to unite for our universal empowerment.
Writers are the life-blood of the collective mind. Poets are the pulse of the spirit. Here are two varrio writers who intimately lived La Vida Loca and now are harnessing that energy to battle oppression and to create critical amor. It is my honor to invite you to our discussion and to also guide you to purchase Pura Neta through Pochino Press here: https://pochino-press.square.site/product/pura-neta/29?cs=true
Always in All Ways, All Amor,
Your Brother Ben
