Expats Radio Talks with Yvonne de la Vega
On August 24th, by proclamation of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Yvonne was nominated for the first ever “Poet Laureate” of the City of Los Angeles. Along with the November release of her first book, “Tomorrow Yvonne: Poetry & Prose for Suicidal Egotists” (Punk Hostage Press), 2012 is becoming a year of public acclaim.
Yvonne joins Bill Friday for 45 minutes of where she’s been, and a look forward to where she’s headed, including her role in the Occupy Movement of Los Angeles.
