The reading series of Burrow Press
A collaborative event by Orlando feminist artist collective Housewifes and Functionally Literate that will transform the Timucua "white house" space into an immersive multimedia art show / literary reading featuring 16 accomplished, local and national artists.
Writers: Cathleen Bota, Teresa Carmody (Maison Femme), Rita Ciresi (Second Wife), Brianna Johnson, Clarity Rose Thorne, and Terri Witek (The Rape Kit). Artists: Lavett Ballard, Jessica Earley, Candy Gonzalez, Angélica Maria Millán Lozano, Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz Klotz, Rosemarie Romero, Kira Gondeck-Silvia, Kayte Terry, Chelsey VanderVliet, and Lin VanderVliet.
Please note: There is limited seating for the reading portion of this event, which starts at 7:30pm. Please RSVP on Eventbrite to ensure a seat. If tickets for the reading sell out, register for the waitlist, still show up for the art show (which runs from 5pm to 7pm) and hang around for a moment before the start of the reading--we'll do our best to accommodate you.
Functionally Literate pairs the best writers in Central Florida with visiting writers from all over the world, bringing contemporary literature to the city of Orlando.
