Actor, Writer, Director Rose Portillo’s Pandemic summer reading
September 21, 2021
"Ay, Severo Perez... estoy triste because I no longer have your words to begin my mornings... ie, I FINISHED your marvelous book. What a beautiful homage to artists and art-making and community and friendship and kindness and love and courage. I know people speak to how well you know San Antonio, (and clearly you do! ), but for me, it is how well you know what it means to be an artist - in all mediums and at all stages of life... your specific, detailed accounting - of the art itself, as well as the artist (and the artist who recognizes artistry)... what an eye you have (have always had) ... Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!"
