PSPC celebrates poetry by hosting visiting guest poets and writers to read their work on a monthly basis through their Distinguished Writers Series. This month, local poet Christina Butcher will be our featured reader. An open mic will follow Christina’s reading public, and everyone is invited to attend and read their own literary works. This reading is FREE and open to the public.
Christina Butcher is a Chicana poet, publisher and veteran from Chaparral, New Mexico. She has a passion for storytelling and community involvement. Christina’s debut poetry collection, Still Clutching Maps, explores ideas of language, power, and place as they inform a person’s ever-evolving identity. Christina holds degrees in anthropology and Chinese-Mandarin language studies, as well as a certificate in storytelling and content strategy. She lives and writes in Tacoma, Washington.
