The Central Track Writer’s Project is presenting an evening of brand-new chapbooks — poetic works — made available for the first time by three of the most talented, important and innovative writers in the Dallas literary community. On Aug. 30 at 7 p.m., they will be celebrated and showcased via a collaborative reading and discussion. The three local writers (pictured above) — Edyka Chilomé, Fatima-Ayan Malika Hirsi and Mike Soto — are all residents of the city of Dallas, and are representative of a broadly diverse swathe of Dallas’s population. They write in three differing, yet all amazing, poetic traditions that make our city such an inspiring place to live, read and write. This chapbook publication and reading presentation is brought to you by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs through a Cultural Vitality Project grant. The event is free and open to the public. For more information about the evening, visit deepvellum.org. Quantities of the chapbooks will be limited. Come early, stay late and celebrate #LiteraryDallas!            — From Staff Reports
