DESCRIPTION

In partnership with Sally Shore's New Short Fiction Series, L.A.'s longest running spoken word series, the Fowler presents readings of short fiction by Chicano authors Ron Arias, Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin, and Alejandro Murguía, three original presenters from the 1973 Festival de Flor y Canto, the nation’s first Chicano literary festival. The performances by actors Matt Ferrucci, Marina Gonzalez Palmier, and Holger Moncado will be followed by a conversation with the writers moderated by Michael Sedano, co-founder of the literary blog La Bloga, exploring where L.A.’s Chicano literary movement began and where it is now.

Co-sponsored by The New Short Fiction Series, a member of the Pasadena Arts Council EMERGE fiscal sponsorship program.
