As an important part of La Pachanga’s program, we will have readings by “El Flaco” Maldonado and Kathleen Alcalá. 

What is more for our Pachanga, Los Norteños considered three proposals of events before choosing eSe Theatro to present a short excerpt of their play, "Don Quixote – Homeless in Seattle” at La Pachanga.  Enjoy the following short video from eSe Theatro.

In addition to the play, CantoMundo’s five year anniversary will be also celebrated at La Pachanga. We’ll have the opportunity to hear some poesía by a handful of the CantoMundo  poets, Barbara Curiel, David Tomas Martinez, and Juan Morales among others.

Lastly for our event, Words on aWire, Daniel Chacón, will be en La Pachanga to be part of this historical momento. 

Con Tinta would like to thank some of our sponsors for this year’s Pachanga.  Gracias a Los Norteños Writers Group, el Consulado de México en Seattle, WA, La Bloga, Francisco X. Alarcón, Words on a Wire, Latina/Latino StudiesProgram at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, BorderSenses Literary Journal, CantoMundo, Celeste Mendoza and Norma Cantú.
