Barrio Writers Book Signing & Live Reading
Saturday, June 5th, 2010
7 pm - 10 pm
In the Summer of 2009, thirty students came together to form the first Barrio Writers chapter in Santa Ana, California, a non-profit reading and writing program that aims to empower teens through creative writing, higher education and cultural arts.
Since then, 20 students have been published in the 1st Edition Barrio Writers, A Collection of Works by Teens for Teens, Teachers & Our Communities.
**Join us for their first book signing & living reading as published authors!**
The students featured in the book have attended various surrounding schools, such as Century and Santa Ana high schools. Please join us in supporting our youth and showing the world that regardless of the obstacles and stereotypes placed on our teens, they find a way to be heard to teach us all life lessons!
Books are limited, please stop by Calacas to buy a book or call to reserve your copy today! Ask to purchase & hold your book for the event: 714-662-2002.
