International borders are more arbitrary than people imagine. Rather than a hard boundary delineating one nation from another, cultures blend, enriching and influencing each other. The FBOMB Borderland explores this overlap, celebrating its cultural richness while soberly examining its pitfalls. Gabino Iglesias, an author, journalist and critic hailing from Austin, Texas is similarly fascinated by they way cultures intermingle at international crossroads, expressed beautifully in his gripping barrio noir novel Zero Saints, which was recently nominated for a Wonderland Book Award and optioned for a feature film. In addition to readings and a talk from Iglesias, guests can bring their own bilingual flash fiction to read during the open mic slots (each reader gets four minutes), participate in the discussion, or just listen. The free event, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, is yet another invaluable contribution to Denver's creative community from the Mercury Cafe, is located at 2199 California St. Visit the FBOMB Borderland Facebook events page to learn more and RSVP.
