The National Writers Union- Hosts Linda Valdez and Open Mic Jan 16, 2017

The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, January 16, starting at 6:00 p.m. at Bookmans on Grant in Tucson. This month Linda Valdez will be the featured reader. She will be reading from her recently published work, Crossing the Line: A Marriage Across Borders (Texas Christian University Press), a personal story about her falling in love with a Mexican man who crossed the border illegally to be with her. Their 27-year marriage “has been a journey of discovery as the daughter of middle-class America and the son of rural Mexico built a life together that honors both cultures. At a time when political rhetoric aims to dehumanize immigrants, this book offers a story of shared humanity.” Linda is a member of the editorial board at The Arizona Republic/azcentral.com and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 2003. Her commentary opposing Arizona’s hard-liner immigration laws earned her the Scripps Howard Walker Stone Award for editorial writing in 2010.

This will be followed by an open mic that is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!

The event will be held in the community room of Bookmans Entertainment Exchange at Grant and Campbell in Tucson (1930 E. Grant Rd.), which is in the back of the store behind the children’s literature section. There is ample free parking.

National Writers Union Tucson Unit November 12, 2014 – NWU Reading and Open Mic this Monday

The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, November 17, starting at 6:15 at Bookmans on Grant in Tucson. Greg Evans, a member of the NWU Tucson Steering Committee, will discuss the pros and cons of authors and publishers participating in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program. Kindle Unlimited is a new subscription service in which readers can pay $9.99 a month and thereby have unlimited access to some 600,000 e-book titles. There will also be a report from NWU Tucson co-chair Keith Bagwell, who will have just returned from the National Writers Union Executive Board Meeting in New York.

This will be followed by an open mic. The open mic is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!

The event will be held in our new location, in the community room of Bookman’s Entertainment Exchange at Grant and Campbell in Tucson (1930 E. Grant Rd.). The community room is in the far back of the bookstore, on the right side past the children’s book area. There is ample free parking.
