Since 1999, Voices of our Nations Arts (VONA) has convened summer workshops that support the development of literary excellence for writers of color. In 2019, in celebration of our 20 years, we are trying something new by introducing VONA Across the Country #VATC.
VONA’s 20 th Birthday Reading features Faith Adiele, Samiya Bashir, Aya de Leon, Reyna Grande, JP Howard, Dickenson Lam, David Mura, Beth Nguyen, and Alan Pelaez. Special guest is VONA co-founder Elmaz Abinader. M. Evelina Galang hosts Friday, March 29, 7-8:30PM. Literary Arts Portland. 925 SW Washington Street, Portland OR, 97205.
What better way to bring in our 20th birthday, than with an intergenerational spirit, inviting alums and faculty into the celebration?
Join us for an extra-special night in the presence of the diverse community that has helped VONA thrive throughout two decades!
