Lorna Dee at Stanford Today, American Literature Association (ALA) Featured Reader Tomorrow, 4 pm, Hyatt, SF

I'll be a guest speaker in two Stanford classes tomorrow. One, Cherrie Moraga's class is open to the public. So join me today at 4 - 6 pm with the artist, Celia Herrera Rodriguez in El Centro Chicano at Stanford. Click here for more info and to hear Linda Hogan at another performance open to the public next week.

Tomorrow I'll be the featured reader at the American Literature Association's conference at 4 pm - following this session at 3 pm:

Session 5-G Critical Reflections on Lorna Dee Cervantes’s Drive: the First Quartet (Pacific J)

Chair: Eliza Rodriguez y Gibson, University of Redlands

2. “Violence, Poetic Language, and The Reader as Critical Witness,” Tiffany Lopez, University of California, Riverside
3. “Ethics and Readership,” Juan Mah y Busch, Loyola Marymount University

You can register for the entire conference as an independent scholar (I kind of like the term) for $80 (which will get you where in a tank of gas?)
