About the event

The project is supported by an Iowa City Public Arts Grant. We couldn't be happier to continue our second session on June 1st at 1:00. Come plant and write. We will ground our bodies, and let our creative minds blossom. This is a free event and all ages and levels of experience are welcome.

Their memoir, “We Heard it When We Were Young,” released in 2021 with The University of Iowa Press. Chuy is the Arts & Culture Editor for Little Village Magazine.
