This spring I didn’t leave San Diego for a minute, and I experienced a multitude of cultural and art events. Here I review the top 20:
1. A Play of The Bluest Eye @ Moxie Theater. What a great rendition, a lighthearted and fun retelling of a classic story. And one of the lead actresses goes to SDSU! Go Aztecs! The Moxie theater is right by campus, and is an intimate but professional space. Ticket prices were very reasonable, so I went to Urban Solace beforehand!! mmmmmm
2. Salon and Reading with poet Matthew Zapruder, at San Diego State. This guy is up there on the list of famous living poets, and was a truly engaging speaker. He leveled with the audience and talked to us like we were old friends, telling us all about his company, Wave Books, and the process of starting it. Most interesting was how he described and brought examples to illustrate the evolution of the Wave Books cover designs. Check them out here!
