Upcoming October Literary Events

We were sadly stricken by the cancellation of this year's Latino Book and Family Festival usually hosted at Cal State Los Angeles. Last year's festival brought a huge success with the many authors that came to talk about their stories, the book signings, the vendor booths, the live music, and the great food. It was so spectacular that we marked our calendars for the next one; but, unfortunately, due to insufficient funding, the festival will not be returning in 2011.

Not to worry, because we did some digging and discovered some other literary happenings for October (which happens to be Hispanic Heritage Month, by the way.)

  • Legendary author, Sandra Cisneros, will make at guest appearance at Libreria Martinez - Sept 24 at 3pm (that's today!)

  • Latina author, Sandra Lopez, speaks at Fullerton Public Library - October 20 at 7pm

  • Teen Read Week at Los Angeles Public Library with YA author, Sandra Lopez - October 22 at 2pm

  • Victor Villasenor speaks at Libreria Martinez - October 22 at 3pm

  • Luis Rodriguez will talk about his new book at Libreria Martinez - November 5 at 4pm

Mark your calendars!
