Event Description

The World Stage Press proudly presents a wildly exciting virtual book release event: “The Orisha Talks: Tales of Lust, Love and Herstorical Memory.” Tricia Cochée’s debut collection of poetry and prose mixes the profane and the sacred into a delicious gumbo of poetic memoir and historical musings. It’s a celebration of life, love, friendship and family, despite its complications.

The author, a fourth generation Californian. Her backdrop, Black Los Angeles. Places and spaces in time, long gone but kept alive in community memory.

“There are places, friendships, relationships and events that hold space in my mind, courting my memory: the opening night of The Good Life restaurant and cultural center; Nelson Mandela speaking at the LA Coliseum; the receptions and art shows at Brockman Gallery and photography openings at the Black Gallery;

The first African Marketplace and Cultural Faire; lectures at Compton College Black Consciousness Conferences; producing festivals at Senshin Buddhist Temple and BackStreet Galleries; and co-founding the SWAAM (Spoken Word Art And Music) poetry lounge.”

— Tricia Cochée
