Father and Son team up with PRdream/MediaNoche (Judith Escalona) for a good cause. On Thursday November 1st, my son and I will be performing together for the first time ever. Jimmy Ray will be reading some of his very own poetry. He has been writing for years and has read at various Barnes and Noble poetry nights as well as for private events such as the Children’s Aid Society and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in the Lower East Side. I will have a quartet to do a jam session along with guests who arrive to sit in and donate their time.

We will be raising funds for CURA Inc. which is dedicated to saving lives through their many programs and services designed to help the Latino community members who suffer from Drug and Alcohol abuse problems. CURA Inc. is a 501(c)3, not for profit organization.

Your presence is required! Please join us from 7pm to 10pm as we entertain you with heartfelt poetry and heartfelt music by my son and me. This will be the beginning of a long journey in which my son and I begin to perform together for various causes around the world.

ADMISSION: Free

Project Descriptions:

Judith Escalona’s “Bx3M: A work in process”
Witness firsthand the ongoing editing of this New York City epic. The
director and invited guests (Director of Photography Ted Ciesielski
and Actor Jaime Sanchez for starters) go through a performative
process of editing. Visitors watch and interact with
them. Behind the scenes footage also on display.

Hector Canonge’s “IDOLatries/IDOLatrías”"
An interactive new media work utilizing barcode and readers to bring
attention to yet another way women are objectified. Barcode takes us
one more step away from seeing these luscious Latinas on boxes,
cans,and jars as anything other than their use value. Consumer heaven
or hell, depending on which side of the supermarket aisle you’re on.

PRdream mourns the passing of Edgardo Vega Yunqué

Edgardo Vega Yunqué
1936-2008

He was born May 20, 1936, a date to be commemorated because he was truly a great writer and contributed to a transnational, transcultural body of literature that is so much a part of what New York City really is all about.

(excerpted from The Daily News) The author of 17 novels, who was born in Cidra, Puerto Rico, and lived alone in Brooklyn, died at Lutheran Hospital on Aug. 25, said his agent Tom Colchie. Ed Vega Yunqué was “a great American writer as well as a great Puerto Rican writer,” he added. Vega Yunqué’s novels, such as ‘Blood Fugues’ and ‘Lamentable Journey of Omaha Bigelow Into the Impenetrable Loisaida Jungle,’ are modern classics.” His first novel ‘The Comeback’ was published in 1985.

Ed Vega Yunqué moved to New York from Puerto Rico in the mid 1940s. He was the stepfather of singer Suzanne Vega. The feisty writer was the director of the Clemente Soto Velez from 1993 to 2000.

His last novel was a comic false memoir about a Jewish woman who meets a Puerto Rican Romeo and falls in love. It had been tentatively titled “Rebecca Horowitz, Puerto Rican Sex Freak” but publication was cancelled by the publisher recently, said Colchie, who’d been trying to find another publisher.
