Hey folks - this Saturday is the launch of Volume 5 of true stories from new authors in my TELL YOUR TRUE TALE writing workshop at ELA Public Library.
3PM - 3rd & Mednik in ELA.
The TYTT stories are becoming quite a cool phenomenon, as they marshal the tales of new authors to stitch in print a tapestry of the area and beyond that is rich and nuanced.
The stories are magnificent ... Nonfiction that reads like fiction:
One woman searched all her life for her disappeared children, and how her grand-niece finally found them. A Chinese girl grows up in South Central. A Zacatecan bracero searches for his family’s sustenance in Nebraska. The story of a woman’s deceased aunt, murdered as a teen ... and another's tale of working as a taxi dancer in the 1970s in downtown LA.
These and more....all from authors who have published very little before this.
Again, the event begins at 3pm in the Library's Chicano Resource Center.
Authors will be there, talking about writing, storytelling, and signing the books, which will be on sale. (Always Five Dollars!)
Please come and have fun. Let others know as well.
Read a selection of the stories at the County Library's site.
