Also reading at ALU! this month will be Iris De Anda, who hosts The Writers Underground Open Mic at the Eastside Cafe every third Thursday of the month and is author of CODESWITCH: Fires From Mi Corazon. She hosts 100 Segundos de Soledad on La Banda Elastica Radio and forms part of the all female rock band The Bloody Gypsys
Last, but certainly not least, we'll have Billy Burgos, an Angeleno poet/writer/painter.

His work (both art and poetry) has been featured at KCET and in numerous literary and art journals.
