SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 10 October -- Karen Cordova

The Saturday, 10 October program meeting of the San Diego Genealogical Society will start at 10 a.m. at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd., just south of Jackson Drive).

The program speaker will be Karen Cordova presenting "Cuentos are Conejos ¡Dios Mio! They are Everywhere."

This will be an exploration of using genealogy to inform poetry. Karen S. Cordova is a writer and business woman who lives in Irvine, California. Karen has deep roots both in Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico. She has participated in formal spoken word performances throughout the United States, and is especially proud to have been included in the 2010 Festival de Flor y Canto at the University of Southern California.

Karen likes to use genealogy, family stories, heirlooms, cultural history, and even DNA testing to inform her poetry and prose— and that will be the focus of her presentation. She will intersperse a few poems throughout her talk, and audience members with a poetic bent might even be inspired to do the same. This will be an interactive talk, so audience questions will be welcomed!
