My “book tour”

I’ll be in the Bay Area this week to talk about my book, Latinos at the Golden Gate. It’s the first of four trips I’m making to the city to share my work and sign some books for those who are interested. It’s also my first trip back since the book came out.

This week I’ll be giving two informal talks on the book, covering the history of Latina/o community in San Francisco from the Gold Rush to the 1970s. I’d love to see you there if you can make it!

Wednesday, January 15 @ 7:30PM
I’m the first spring 2014 public talk event sponsored by Shaping SF. My talk will be at the Eric Quezada Center, in the heart of the Mission District, at 518 Valencia. The event is free and open to the public. For more info you can visit their website.

Thursday, January 16 @ 7:00PM
I’m also speaking in Berkeley, at the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (2521 Channing Way). This event is part of the California Studies Dinner Seminar series. The dinner and discussion are both free (although they ask for a small donation for drinks) but an RSVP is required. You can find out the details by visiting their website.

I don’t think they’ll be selling books at either event but if you bring a copy I’d be happy to sign it!

Hope to see you this week!

  1. Of course! Saturday, February 15th at the SF Main Library is my next one. Probably the most “public” of my gigs. Love to see you there! (And hope you feel better soon!)

  2. OK, I’ve put Feb 15 on my calendar. All it says at the moment is “Baby sit overnight at Sara’s”, but that’s probably just Robin. If that date doesn’t work, I’ll get to one of these!
