Award-Winning Author/LA Times Writer Hector Tobar at Fullerton Library Jan. 31 to Kick Off "Gustavo's Awesome Lecture Series!"
And it gives me great pleasure to know that Tobar is coming to the Fullerton Public Library to kick off the second installment of "Gustavo's Awesome Lecture Series!"
It'll happen January 31 at the Community Room (the gleaming auditorium at the Library, not the awesomely retro one) at 7 p.m. and as usual is sponsored by the Fullerton Library, Cal State Fullerton's Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies (where I'm a lecturer), and now KCRW-FM 89.9. I'll interview Tobar about his career, his books, and his own connections to Orange County (a graduate of UCI's legendary MFA program in creative writing, and an African-American padrino who once ran a black newspaper in Orange County in the 1960s until getting death threats--ah, Orange County...). The talk starts at 7 p.m., and as usual: lecture, FREE but books, BARATO. See you there!
