Tuesday, September 18 - Friday, July 26 All Day - Tseng Gallery, Oviatt Library
Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.
11:15 am - 12:45 pm - Presentation Room, Oviatt Library
Luis J. Rodriguez Award-winning writer and poet and Activists and Artists from the Northeast San Fernando Valley
The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. Yet, until 2001 when Tia Chuchaâ€™s opened itâ€™s doors, the Northeast Valley had no trade bookstores, movie houses, art galleries, or decent cultural spaces. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chuchaâ€™s inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national art s policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.
Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. For more information on the event please contact Dr. Denise Sandoval at email@example.com.
