Tijuana, Baja California
YAhora invites you to traverse the border, ignore the border, contemplate the border, read poetry to the border, perform or de-perform the border, and enjoy the mixing of cultures, languages and experiences that the Tijuana-San Diego Metropolitan Zone invites. Co-curated/uncurated by Jen Hofer and John Pluecker and co-sponsored by the bookstore and café El ––Grafógrafo and cog·nate binational arts collective, YAhora will take place one day after the &Now festival in San Diego ends. YAhora is an opportunity for writers who have come to &Now from all over the U.S. and beyond and fellow writers in Tijuana to connect, to converse, and to learn about each other’s works and worlds.
