An Evening with Poet Laureates Octavio Quintanilla & Jenny Browne

It is not often, unfortunately, that we have to say “get there early or you won’t get a seat” about a poetry event. That’s totally the case, however, with this week’s talk at the San Antonio Museum of Art that boasts outgoing Poet Laureate of San Antonio and 2017 Poet Laureate of Texas Jenny Browne and new San Antonio Poet Laureate Dr. Octavio Quintanilla (pictured). This special event will feature a sit-down dialogue between the two poets, covering a variety of literacy and literary topics, preceded by a solo lecture from Quintanilla in which he discusses his own work. It promises to be an engaging evening of discussion that, appropriate for our Tricentennial reflections, highlights the current state of literary thought and work in San Antonio. Seating for this free event is limited, and these two esteemed poets can draw a crowd.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
