OLLU Book Fair


I wanted to extend a special invitation to you to join us on Saturday, March 24 at OLLU for our first Book Fair, in conjunction with our 9th annual Center for Mexican American Studies and Research conference. As you know, we are hosting a Latina Leadership panel (at Thiry Auditorium) on that same date, co-sponsored by MALCS-SA.

The Book Fair will be held from 8:30 to 10:30 Saturday morning at the UWAC Building, across from Thiry Auditorium. We are seeking to draw local residents, particularly area youth and young adults. The Fair is co-hosted by the SAPL and REFORMA (La Estrella de Tejas, San Antonio Chapter) and both organizations will be giving away books to attendees.

We invite you to bring copies of your books for signing and reading excerpts. We will have an open reading session, though we have a few students and alumni who have offered to read their published and/or unpublished works. The Latina Leadership panel will follow this event (10:30 - 11:45). If you think of others who might be interested, please share this invitation with them as well. Thank you for considering this invitation (and late notice ).

Let me know if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns.
