Gemini Ink continues to be a pivotal force in cultivating literature in San Antonio. The organization has worked with top writers, including screenwriters, journalists, novelists, poets and playwrights. On September 6, Gemini Ink will celebrate its 20th anniversary while honoring San Antonio’s inaugural poet laureate Carmen Tafolla with the Award for Literary Excellence. Since 2000, the annual award has been given to a local writer who’s displayed a national standard of literary excellence and last year was a big one for Tafolla: Wings Press released her book of poetry Rebozos, her books were banned in Arizona as part of the massive removal of Mexican American literature in the Tuscon Unified School District and she was named the first poet laureate of San Antonio. If that’s not an award in itself, she will be bestowed with the thanks and gratitude of Gemini Ink, like herself a grand dame on our literary scene.
