LSC-Montgomery Invites Community to Poetry Anthology Discussion

"Goodbye, Mexico" book cover
Lone Star College-Montgomery and the Montgomery County Literary Art Council’s Writers in Performance series invites the public to attend readings of GoodBye Mexico: Poems of Remembrance on Thursday, September 24, at 7 p.m. in the General Academic Center (building G), room 102, at Lone Star College-Montgomery.
This free event includes readings by poet laureates and national award-winning writers including Jerry Bradley, Randall Watson, Germaine Welch, Loueva Smith, Elizabeth Humber, and Melissa Studdard.

This 70-page anthology, often called ‘a love song to Mexico,’ gathers the strong voices of accomplished poets reaching into and beyond nostalgia to remember, honor, and document their experiences of Mexico and the vibrant border areas before the ravages of narco-violence.

Writers in Performance is a reading program dedicated to bringing the most distinguished minds and their bright visions to the citizens of Montgomery County through thought-provoking literature and cultural diversity. The series’ events are made possible by the partnerships between Lone Star College-Montgomery, SWIRL Literary & Arts Journal, Conroe Commission on Arts & Culture, and the Montgomery County Literary Arts Council.
