The Friends of the Oviatt Library invite you to join us for a book signing and documentary viewing with Denise M. Sandoval, Ph.D. CSU, Northridge Chicano Studies Professor and John Cantú, Independent Filmmaker as they discuss the book and documentary:

Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts Are Transforming a Community

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. 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 Chucha's inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national arts policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.
