Friday, November 6, 2015: Join us to meet author, Arturo Martinez
This novel shows the effects of a kidnapping; physical abuse, fear, taunting. This young man is now a clown, who makes us laugh by his grace, or by his misfortune. A light of hope awakens his intelligence, his talent, and the desire to live. Never a jester had become a king. Here you will know why.
Arturo Martinez studied Odontology at the Autonomous National University of Mexico UNAM and currently works for the Fullerton School District as a Special Educator.

"This groundbreaking book gathers the stories of the struggle for social justice through the voices of Latina/o leaders in education. Offering poignant, moving testimonios and well-researched scholarly essays, this collection covers the significant court cases that ultimately ended the racist educational policies under Jim Crow." Norma E. Cantú, Professor of Latina/Latino Studies and English at the University of Missouri-Kansas City

Wednesday, December 2, 2015: Join us to meet special author, Dr. Peter McLaren
The introduction to Pedagogy of Insurrection starts with an important explanation of why revolutionary critical pedagogy offers a meaningful intervention in an era in which education has become an irrelevance amid the meaningless pursuit of value which drives its primary actors. Peter says: "Those who do not want to talk critically about capitalism should keep quiet about the barbarism we are witnessing all around us”.
Wednesday, December 2nd: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, December 5th: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Join us to meet author: Mario T. Garcia
In The Chicano Generation, veteran Chicano civil rights scholar Mario T. García provides a rare look inside the struggles of the 1960s and 1970s as they unfolded in Los Angeles. This book illuminates the lives of Raul Ruiz, Gloria Arellanes, and Rosalio Muñoz—their family histories and widely divergent backgrounds; the events surrounding their growing consciousness as Chicanos; the sexism encountered by Arellanes; and the aftermath of their political histories.
Saturday, December 5th: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
