      About the artists:

      ROSETTE CAPOTORTO
      Is a poet and writer who was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. Part of
      a literary tradition of Italian American writers whose roots are firmly
      planted in the principles of feminism as well as a politicized ethnic
      identity, her work has been published in numerous literary journals and in
      the current anthologies Are Italians White? The Making of Race in America,
      Italian American Writers on New Jersey, and The Milk of Almonds. Her
      recently published chapbook, Bronx Italian, has an introduction by Edvige
      Giunta.
      A two-time recipient of the Edward F. Albee Fellowship, and of an Allen
      Ginsberg Honorable Mention, Ms. Capotorto has a BA from Hunter College
      where
      she was privileged to study poetry with Audre Lorde. She has completed but
      not published Pop Beads, a novel in the form of interconnected stories based
      on her Bronx childhood. Her most recent project, Take My Redheaded Word
      for
      It, is a collection of 100 short poems.

      AHIMSA TIMOTEO BODHRAN
      Was born in 1974 on El Dia de la Madre in the South Bronx. An activist and
      community organizer for over a decade, his award-winning work has
      appeared
      in over 50 publications, and he has given over one hundred readings around
      the country. In 1998, Bodhran received his B.A. in Women's Studies from San
      Francisco State University. Bodhran completed his M.F.A. in Creative Writing
      at Brooklyn College and is now enrolled in a Ph.D program in Rhetoric and
      Writing at Michigan State University where he is a Dean's Graduate
      Recruitment Fellow.
