THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: POET LAUREATE OF LOS ANGELES, YENIFFER BEHRENS ON GENERAL HOSPITAL, FIESTA DE LOS BARRIOS AND MORE.
Hola mis queridos Latinopianos. Your Tia Tenopia welcomes you to another week of Latinopia. This week we were delighted to hear that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has named renowned author and poet Luis J. Rodríguez as the Los Angeles Poet Laureate! The appointment is for two years and we at Latinopia congratulate Luis for this well earned honor. We post three videos featuring Luis reading from his works, “Always Running,” “Concrete River,” and “Running to America,” and a special feature, “Luis Rodriguez in His Own Words.” Check out these cool videos.
Later this week, we showcase Venezuelan-born actress Yeniffer Behrens talking about her role as Marianna Erosa in the daytime drama General Hosptal. And in our Moment In Time photo we showcase a moment at the 1969 Fiesta De Los Barrios in Los Angeles. And be sure to check out Angela’s Photo of the Week, “Nice.”
Enjoy your videos and blogs this week on Latinopia!
