Inkstravaganza Gala: The Writers Life

October 18, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Writer’s Life

Celebrating Gemini Ink’s 25th Anniversary
Past Inkstravaganza Honorees

October 18, 2018 | The Pearl Stable | 6-9pm

Join us for the literary party of the season, celebrating 25 years of Gemini Ink and the 17 honorees we’ve featured since 2000! The theme for the evening is “The Writer’s Life.”

We’re thrilled to celebrate this very special birthday with our community of readers and writers—and what better way to do so than with our 25th Anniversary Inkstravaganza? Each year we honor one individual with the Literary Award of Excellence. This year we have the special honor of recognizing not one individual but all 17 previous recipients of this award.

Tomás Ybarra-Frausto, Jan Jarboe Russell, Coleen Grissom, Nan Cuba, Carmen Tafolla, Barbara Ras, John Phillip Santos, Lee Robinson, Jerry Winakur, Steven G. Kellman, Abraham Verghese, David Liss, Sterling Houston, Robert Flynn, Wendy Barker, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Rosemary Catacalos.

We’re so grateful for our members, supporters and the community who do so much to help us provide excellent creative writing education and outreach in San Antonio–a legendary city of stories and storytellers. We’d love for you to join us on this festive evening! The gala will feature live jazz by Miguel Angel Garza and “Jaque” Sotelo, on-site screenprinting by Snake Hawk Press, dinner by Page Barteau, sale of a limited edition chapbook by Léo Lee and the Southwest School of Art, a silent auction, and more!
