BEI Senior Fellow, Patricia Spears Jones will be speaking and reading poetry at the second annual Gemini Writers Conference. In a special pre-festival event titled “Real Women Have Words,” Marilyn Atlas, the award-winning producer of HBO’s Real Women Have Curves, will join SA2020 president and CEO Molly Cox in conversation with Jackson Poetry Prize winner Patricia Spears Jones. Then on the 22nd, at 7pm, Jones will read and speak alongside a panel of other speakers. Since its founding in 1997, Gemini Ink, a literary organization whose work “honors and springs from the human story and is dedicated to building language skills, self-esteem and a strong sense of human connectedness in citizens of all ages,” has played an increasingly robust role in supporting and growing San Antonio’s literary scene, working with budding and well-established local talents, as well as bringing some of the finest national and international wordsmiths to town.
