Book Signing for Homenaje a las guerreras/ Homage To The Warrior Women

It is with great pleasure that I would like to invite you to the signing of my second book Homenaje a las guerreras/Homage To The Warrior
Women.To help me celebrate this family friendly evening honoring female strength, there will be a special opening meditation dedicated to our ancestral women led by Iya Jacqueline Odusinya Martin, reading by Christina Marie Tapia-Echevarria, handmade gifts created by Red Sirens for the first 25 women, food catered by Flora La Poeta Montes, and a performance by The Legacy Women: All Women’s Afro Caribbean Drum Troupe.Homenaje a las guerreras / Homage To The Warrior Women is a collection of poetry and prose dedicated to the inherited strength of women as expressed in their labor, love, sensuality, spirituality and movement. This book honors the vitality, power and prowess of everyday women and how their rituals, wit, and perceived imperfections can create an evocative legacy.Through English, Spanish and Spanglish, readers are introduced to domestic divas, healers, dancers and spiritualists that have strengthened my spirit and have taught me to embrace their legacy of love and struggle.

A special thanks to the men who support warrior women: Pepper Negrón for the cover photography, Kiko NYC for layout and the one and only Charlie Vázquez for editing.

Please arrive on time so that you can participate in the meditation and dance to those drums!!

Hope to see you all there!!
