Mandorla reading announcement 2012
Mandorla magazine’s Chicago reading, Friday March 2, begins at 7:30 pm in the Chicago Cultural Center’s fifth floor Millennium Park Room.  Doors open at 7pm.  The event is free and open to the public.

Our readers will be Anna Deeny, LaTasha Nevada Diggs, Roberto Harrison, Timothy Liu, David Matlin, Elena Minor, Urayoán Noel, Davis Schneiderman, Edwin Torres, Rodrigo Toscano, Eliot Weinberger, and CD Wright.  Hosting the event are two of our three co-editors, Kristin Dykstra and Roberto Tejada, with Chicago-based contributing editor Daniel Borzutzky.

We hope you can join us to celebrate this diverse group of Mandorla contributors -- translators, poets, prose writers, performers, & we aren't even listing all the things they do. Come and be surprised.  This reading also coincides with the AWP conference happening nearby.

Mandorla:  New Writing from the Americas / Nueva escritura de las Américas emphasizes innovative writing in its original language – most commonly English or Spanish – and translations of existing material.
