Wendy Brown-Baez takes you into her vibrant, colorful world with sensual imagery, elegant rhythms and poignant stories. Traveling from Mexico to the Middle East, from homelessness to hope, from infatuation to grief, she voices the relentless pursuit of the human spirit for connection and joy.
"… That’s what Wendy does, she connects us with words and wraps us in the safety of a shawl so we can fall in love with poetry once again."- Gary Glazner, Founder of the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project
"An iconoclast by nature, Wendy Brown(-Baez) defies classification. But she has been called a performance poet, which is an apt description....Mark States of Poetry Express says people adored her the last time she performed at Priya, convincing him to feature her again....She works the room with maximum theatrically, drawing those who are transfixed on the drama before them into her vivid, vibrant world." ----Natasha Nargis, East Bay Express
