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. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Edwin Sánchez, shown at right, has just released his debut novel Diary of a Puerto Rican Demigod. There will be a launch party for the book on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at Pregones Theater's eponymous space (located in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South Bronx). For more information on the launch party, click here. For more information on the novel (or to buy it), click here.

Suni Reyes will be performing standup comedy as part of the Juerga en El Barrio event. Presented by the Hispanic Federation in collaboration with Boundless Theatre Company and Producciones El Barrio, it will take place in July at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center (located in Manhattan's El Barrio neighborhood).
