As part of the Elms College Women’s History Month celebration, international spoken word artist and award-winning poet Gabriela Garcia Medina will present a program of “spoken word” poetry at seven p.m. on Sunday, March 25, 2012 in the Elms College Library Theater.
Several Elms students will share the stage with Ms. Medina. “These are students who are poetry writers but may never have another opportunity to meet someone like Gabriela,” says Jose Tolson, director of the Elms College campus activities office. “Everyone in the audience will also be invited to ask Gabriela questions about writing poetry and performing.”
Ms. Medina has toured colleges, churches and festivals since 2007. Her work has been featured in nationwide commercials for Dove and Toyota.
“Gabriela will share her inspirational work with our community in a unique, multicultural setting,” Tolson says.
