Women of Naropa Event


Bombay Gin editorial board would like to invite you to Thursday’s Women of Naropa Reading!

Along with the earth-shaking Anne Waldman, the night will include performances by Lisa Birman, HR Hegnauer, Maureen Owen, Andrea Rexilius, Laura Wright, and a collaboration between Michelle Naka Piece and Ariella Ruth.

Attendees will also enjoy readings by Bombay Gin’s own editor-in-chief J’Lyn Chapman and editor Jade Lascelles, as well as a collaborative performance by Bombay Gin editors and Jack Kerouac School (JKS) students June Lucarotti and April Joseph.

This event offers a rare opportunity for JKS students to share the stage with celebrated faculty, providing an exciting showcase. The audience will be graced by performances from additional JKS students Erin Likins, Rachel Newlon, Elizabeth J. Sparenberg, and a collaboration between Elyse Brownell and Tiara Lopez.

Please join us this Thursday at 7:30 PM in the Performing Arts Center on Naropa University’s Arapahoe campus. The event is $5 for Naropa students and faculty and $8 for the public.  All proceeds go to Bombay Gin and Friendship Bridge, “a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that provides microcredit and education to Guatemalan women so that they can create their own solutions to poverty for themselves, their families and their communities.” Together we can help make the community a better place and join Anne Waldman in keeping it “safe for poetry.”

Women of Naropa Reading

It is astonishing to consider that the Bombay Gin editorial staff is putting the finishing touches on issue 38.2. Yet, before we look forward to our June 10 release party and the 2012 Summer Writing Program, the end of the semester brings us yet another opportunity to raise some money, this time for both the journal and the Women’s Bean Project, an organization that helps women break the cycle of poverty and unemployment by teaching them job readiness and life skills for entry-level jobs through employment in their gourmet food production and handmade jewelry manufacturing businesses.

Each spring semester, the generous Lark Fox, an alumna of JKS, works with Bombay Gin and JKS to organize the Women of Naropa reading. The wonderful Anne Waldman will read as well as Lisa Birman, Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Diana McLean, Michelle Naka Pierce, Maureen Owen, Bhanu Kapil, J’Lyn Chapman and Danielle Vogel and current Naropa students, including our very own Alice Virginia and Katie Ingegneri! Please join us this Friday at 8 pm in the Goldfarb Student Center: $5 for students and $8 for non-students. All the proceeds will go toward Bombay Gin and the Women’s Bean Project.
