Maria will be reading from her collection surrounded by Lito Silva’s vibrant images.

“Energy sizzles in these lyrical pieces that pulsate to the beat of Lito Silva’s powerful images.The combination of Maria Straw-Cinar’s distinctive voice with Lito Silva’s vibrant images is breathtaking.A unique debut in which every mark on the page and every sound matters. ”
