HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Sosa James, Jr., shown at right, booked a lead role in the film Honeymoon (written and directed by Karly Beaumont) after he read about the casting in the e-mail announcements HOLA sends to its members and self-submitted.

Albania Matos nabbed a role in the film Redeploy (written and directed by Nuria Dixon). For more information, click here.

Patrick Michael Valley is going on tour with the American Family Theater production of a new version of Cinderella (directed by David Leidholdt) between March and May 2013. For more information, click here.

There will be a presentation and reading of Breaking Ground: Anthology of Puerto Rican Women Writers in New York 1980-2012/Abriendo caminos: antología de escritoras puertorriqueñas en Nueva York 1980-2012 (edited by Myrna Nieves) on February 23, 2013 at La Casa de la Herencia Puertorriqueña in Manhattan’s El Barrio neighborhood. The book features work by many Latina authors including Rhina Valentín. For more information, click here.
