TONIGHT: Open mic poetry reading and vigil at 5:30 to remember Fresno State graduate student Mia Barraza Martinez who died Nov. 20 in a car crash.
The vigil encourages any style of sharing - including poetry, music, and stories - to remember and celebrate the life and work of Ms. Barraza Martinez, a graduate student in the Fresno State MFA program in creative writing, teaching associate, and graduate assistant for the U.S. Poet Laureate's lab on campus.
She got her start as a poet at Fresno City College, and the vigil will be held at the FCC main fountain (1101 E. University Ave.). Parking is free in Lot D after 5pm. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her friends, family, and students. ... See MoreSee Less
