Autobiography Book group: A Chicano in China, by Rudolfo Anaya
Wed., April 21, 2010- 6:30 PM at Hayward Main Library, 835 C St., @ Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA 94541 (2 blocks from Hayward BART).
This month, in conjunction with the BIG READ, we will be reading Rudolfo Anaya's book A Chicano in China. Having grown up with an inherited fantasy about Asia, Anaya headed to the Far East to find scenes and symbols familiar to a Chicano. Anaya offers us a cultural and spiritual autobiography in which he strives to make China meaningful by relating it to the world of a New Mexican Chicano. This journal is less about China itself than of the way Anaya views his experience. For more information contact [email protected] or call 510-881-7941.
