An Evening of Poetry and Storytelling Celebrating National Poetry Month with San Diego Poet Laureate Jason Perez
April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 – $10
In honor of National Poetry Month, San Diego Poet Laureate Jason Magabo Perez comes home to Oceanside on Thursday, April 25 at 7 PM to share his work in the city where he grew up. He will be joined by local poets Karla Cordero, Angela Narciso Torres, Shadab Sheest Hashmi and Angelica Yanez, and end the program with a question and answer session moderated by OTC Board Member and local activist Jimmy Figueroa. A graduate of El Camino High School and proud alumnus of Oceanside public schools, Magabo Perez draws from his three hybrid collections of poetry and prose: I ask about what falls away, Phenomenology of Superhero and This is for the mostless. Much of his work stems from his experience growing up in Oceanside as a Filipino-American and child of immigrants. He is currently an Associate Professor and Director of Ethnic Studies at CSU San Marcos. Tickets can be purchased through OceansideTheatre.org or by calling the box office at 760-433-8900. Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for general admission.
