Chola Salvation: A Reading and Discussion with Estella González
November 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join acclaimed writer, Estella González, and the Tomás Rivera Chair, Professor Alex Espinoza, for a reading and discussion of her new book, Chola Salvation, a collection of short stories that focus on the lives of Mexican and Chicanx characters living in East Los Angeles. In these narratives, working-class men and women struggle with self-hatred, economic survival and patriarchal oppression in urban America and educational institutions. Some protagonists succumb to their circumstances while others transcend them through wit and creativity.
