Presenting the fourth publication by Spoken Futures Press: the debut poetry collection of Araceli Montaño and Alexia Vazquez!
Hustlin’ Hermanas embraces the lives of two Xicanas navigating day-to-day spaces as chingonas from Southside Tucson – showcasing what the hustle looks like! Their voices speak to queerness, feminism, navigating borders, undocumented status, language, youth, fuerza and so much more.
Alexia and Araceli will perform poems from the book, plus special guest poets, music, dancing, and a night for community!
FREE & ALL AGES! Hustlin’ Hermanas will be available to purchase!
This event will take place at La Pilita Cultural Center, 420 S. Main Ave.
We will also be accepting donations!
“A woman who writes has power, and a woman with power is feared.” -Gloria Anzaldúa
Alexia and Araceli are both TYPS alumni that competed in slams and performed at various community events until they aged out. After that, they both began working with Spoken Futures as teaching artists and continue to hold down spaces for youth!
