Latinos in Lotusland in Santa Ana

This Saturday, March 28, contributors to the anthology Latinos in Lotusland will descend on Liberia Martinez in Santa Ana.

You should too.

In the OC Weekly, Andrew Tonkovich writes it up:

MacArthur genius/bookstore impresario Ruben Martinez meets his match in writer/editor/cultural-arts blogger (“La Bloga”) Daniel Olivas this Saturday when the two meet up at Santa Ana’s literary mecca to introduce contributors to Latinos In Lotusland: An Anthology of Contemporary Southern California Literature. For his groundbreaking collection, Olivas famously put out a call for stories featuring the Los Angeles area in any form, social realism to magical realism, so this sweeping anthology includes everybody and their hermano, with familiar names —John Rechy, Mario Suarez, Helena Viramontes—as well as new voices chronicling experiences and perspectives often overlooked by mainstream publishing. Reading at the Libreria Martinez celebration/reception are OC locals Alejandro Morales and Lisa Alvarez, Angelenos Victorio Barragan, Sandra Ramos O'Briant and Conrad Romo, Denver novelist Manuel Ramos, with Martinez and Olivas your enthusiastic hosts.
Some fun - it's a party con vino y queso - join us.

1200 N. Main St, Suite 100-D in downtown Santa Ana. 3-6 PM.
