Recetas Reading PR


Join us to listen to bilingual food stories from our Recetas de mi vida senior writing workshop. Under the guidance of local author Bárbara Renaud González, local Southside seniors documented stories and recipes for an upcoming e-publication—soon to be available to Bexar County residents through the Bibliotech Digital Library.


We’ve been awarded a Matching Challenge Grant by the Kronkosky Charitable Foundation. Every dollar you give in this year’s Annual Campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar!  It’s another great reason to support our excellent literary arts programs in your end-of-the-year giving.

“The experience of La Voz was an enlightening time for me. It was my first time EVER using my voice in that way to share something that I believed in so strongly, and having people react to it was an incredible feeling. It definitely showed me a new world I never knew about and I will never be able to stress how meaningful of an experience this was for me.” —Victoria Falcon on La Voz de San Antonio, 2014 La Voz 14-19 age group winner

My eyes are alive againVelitta Prather

My heart is expanding

Joy floods my spirit – My spirit soars

Lethargy is thrown off like

a heavy winter coat

I have bounce in my step. Why?

Writing class has started again, thanks to Gemini Ink!

—Velitta Prather on Recetas de mi vida (Recipes of My Life), a writing workshops for seniors featured here.

unnamedGemini Ink’s 2014 Autograph Series brought novelist Robert Boswell and David Tomas Martinez, a poet and Canto Mundo Fellow to San Antonio.  Upon hearing these great writers, my students understood that literature is not merely printed on a page; it is alive and sentient. Words can change a life and Gemini Ink’s work proves this, again and again. –Patricia Portales, Author and San Antonio College Professor
