Piñata Moon at Tucson Festival of Books

I’ll be at the Indie Pavilion on Sunday from 12:15-2:15. Come by and say hi.

Last I heard, the Tucson Festival of Books hasn’t been cancelled.

Here are a few other places you can find the book.

Writing Workshops as Artist in Residence

I love doing writing workshops and I had a great time at Tanque Verde High School presenting Piñata Moon! I lead writing workshops as the artist in residence at Environmental Education Exchange:  https://www.eeexchange.org/staff-overview-1

Special thanks to Carol Weiss for her support and encouragement of this residency!

Email me if you’re interested in a hands-on writing workshop based on the book.

Won a Photo Contest at the Water Resources Research Center

Chris Yazzie Water Testing on Navajo Nation

Very excited to have won for the People Category at the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) annual photography competition. This is a photo of Chris Yazzie water testing at a windmill we stopped at on Navajo Nation. The work that Chris is doing about water quality and cleaning water on Navajo Nation is very inspiring. Thank you, Chris, for letting me document your important work. The announcement and other photos can be seen here: https://wrrc.arizona.edu/news/photo-contest-winners-announced

If you are in Tucson there will be a Chocolate Fest 2020 at the WRRC on February 13th at 3:30. They’ll be showing the 2020 photos and they’ll be plenty of chocolate to eat. Hope to see you there!

  • Poet and community artist Torran Anderson, whose work addresses the small things about Tucson that we all notice and love.
  • Mixed media artist Xinyu Zhang, whose work will be on view in the museum.
  • Writer/performance artist, Mele Martinez, whose book-length manuscript called The Molino tells the story of her family and their tamal /tortilla factory in downtown Tucson.

Each will present their work and thoughts on their creative process over the last year of project development.

04/07/19 Cyclovia Tucson is a free, public event and while many people ride bicycles, participants can walk, skate, use wheelchairs, push strollers, and use any non-motorized form of transportation they wish to slow down, take in the sights, and experience the city from a new perspective, outside of car.
