La Raza Galeria Posada, which has played host to a number of poetry readings held by Escritores Del Nuevo Sol (Writers of the New Sun), will close after a last Second Saturday event on July 8th.
According to a July 4th story in the Sacramento Bee, the closure was " 'temporary' and would allow the group to 'revisit and revise existing programs.'"
Escritores Del Nuevo Sol, a literary community established in 1993 which especially honors the literary and artistic cultures and traditions of the Chicano, Latino, Indigenous and Spanish-language peoples, held both readings and monthly workshops at LRGP. No news presently on where they will relocate their events, but look for updates at their website: http://www.escritoresdelnuevosol.com/
The last event at LRGP will be the July 8th closing reception for the Chicano Collection Exhibit which runs from 6 to 9pm. 1421 R Street.
