Celebrate New Author, Share and Revel in Bilingual Poetry: TONIGHT in Providence with Isis Storm and Venus Sings

8 Dec
“To witness and support another woman of color who has met her destiny as a published author – that is the essence of what Isis Storm is here to do.  For it to be a woman of color living in RI, who was born and raised in Spain and who wrote the book in Spanish – that is a demonstration of how we navigate, join and promote both a local and global consciousness.”  – Isis Storm Co-founder, Reza Clifton
