The Saturday, June 16, 2018 Just Words event at the Tranquilbuzz Coffee House (112 W Yankie St.) will feature Bonnie Buckley-Maldonado, Jessa Tumposky, and Melanie Zipin. Once upon a time (October 2015) Virus Theater presented a performance piece based on the poetry of Bonnie Buckley-Maldonado as part of the Southwest Festival of the Written Word. Bonnie Buckley-Maldonado provided the words. Jessa Tumposky played the child Bonnie on stage. Melanie Zipin played the adult Bonnie. On June 16, 2018, they will share the stage again with readings from their own work. Open mic will follow their performance. That means your poems, stories, observations. The event starts at 2:00 p.m.
