Lunada: Lit on the full moon

Apr 7, 2014

The Lunada is one of the Bay Area’s only bilingual open mics.

Every month, on the full moon, writers, poets, musicians, and artists gather at the Galeria de la Raza in San Francisco’s Mission District to present their work in Spanish, English, or a mix of the two.

“In Latin America there is a history of gathering under the full moon, of families and communities gathering,” says Lunda host and curator Sandra Garcia Rivera. “It stems from that tradition.”

It’s a tradition that San Francisco resident Stacey Leigh has made her own.
