Glimpses of a Challenging History Featuring Leny M. Strobel and Eileen R. Tabios
4-6 p.m., Saturday, May 16, 2020
1717 Yulupa Ave.
Santa Rosa, CA 95405
Leny M. Strobel and Eileen R. Tabios present new books on healing historical trauma through the powers of poetry, storytelling, music and dance. In GLIMPSES, Strobel provides a poetic memoir that reveal how personal experiences cannot be separate from globalization, colonization and other oppressive experiences of hierarchy. In PAGPAG, Tabios presents short stories about children who left their homeland with parents who opposed Ferdinand Marcos’ dictatorship. Both reveal how words can create new worlds by surfacing new contexts that are more aligned with justice because, indeed, the personal is political and the political is personal. When we speak and write of justice, we are also invoking beauty. Beauty heals. Poetry heals. Stories heal.
Guest artists also will provide song, dance and poetry.
