Spoken-word artist Gabriela Garcia Medina will perform at Penn State Berks on Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Multipurpose Room. This performance is free and open to the public.

Few spoken word artist can speak of revolution and do it with style; Medina is one of them. Born in Russia to Cuban parents, she has a unique perspective. Her poetry ranges from topics as serious as the social injustices to her love of wearing lingerie. Medina has been relentlessly touring colleges, festivals, and churches since 2007, and her words have found a permanent home on the walls of Eva Longoria's new restaurant "Besos" in Los Angeles.

This performance is part of the college's Arts and Lecture Series. For more information, contact the Campus Life Office at 610-396-6076.
