Readings

Bessy Reyna presents readings of her poetry in English or both in English and Spanish

  “With their passion, humanity and melancholy laced with zany wit, Bessy Reyna’s poems just about leap off the page.  
  For the full experience, however, you should hear her read them.”
                                          
Rennie McQuilken, poet, founder and former Director Sunken Garden Poetry Festival

 “And to hear her perform her work is to be first transported, then transformed.”
                                          
Wally Lamb, novelist (She’s Come Undone, I Know This Much Is True)
