"Un-Forgetting is a process that condemns and liberates us to nostalgia, memories, and remembrances. We all have crossed borders, real and imaginary, and through writing we keep crossing borders. Writing as a process which allows us to forget, leave memories behind as we recreate new stories and trace new paths. Writing also implies that we remember, that we rescue those stories so that they are not lost in the hands of forgetfulness, in the border. un-Forgetting means to remember, but also to recreate, through writing, what we are, what we were, what we want to be."

Light refreshments will be served!
