Palabra: Open Mic captures the spirit and diversity of an actual open mic. A regular occurrence at La Bodega Gallery in the Barrio Logan neighborhood of San Diego, Palabra brings together poets and authors with stories to tell and beautiful ways to tell them. This book is a collection of those unique voices—some are funny, some are sad, some are both. But they are all raw and real. The talented poets who attend Palabra are honest and uninhibited when they stand to share their writing. And that realness, transcribed on the pages that make up Palabra: Open Mic, is what makes the book so inviting. The reader is suddenly there, sitting alongside everyone else, a part of the community.
