A new Memoir Noir!

From the author of Pregones’ Dancing In My Cockroach Killers

Magdalena Gómez, nationally acclaimed Poet Laureate of Springfield-MA, playwright, educator, and activist whose fiery words gave life to Pregones/PRTT’s Dancing In My Cockroach Killers, presents her deeply personal and stirring memoir noir MI’JA, newly published by Heliotrope Books, on May 25th at 7pm in The Bronx. At once heartbreaking and hilarious, MI’JA chronicles the first nineteen years of the author’s life: “It is fairytales and bestiaries in ceiling cracks; mythologies on the fire escape; realities of how the smallest acts of kindness can conquer despair.”
