Alice Bag: We are conduits for ideas, we are agents of change.

March 17, 2014

AliceBagConduitsWhile I’ve been busy organizing various elements for Ventura College’s Earth Day (go here to learn more) and preparing to meet with Ventura College Associated students Tuesday March 18, my students have been organizing their own presentations and preparing their own blogs about their “book club books” which have included Alice Bag‘s Violence Girl and Tony Fletcher‘s A Boy About Town (they also had the option of reading Cheryl Strayed’s Wild or Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried.) Both Tony and Alice are interested in coming to Ventura College and speaking on Earth Day and hopefully sharing the music that has inspired them and their autobiographies! As they were both active in the punk and DIY scene around the same time frame but on different continents, I’d love to hear them in conversation as well. I’m hopeful that my students’ blogs will help me convince them!

    I love Alice Bag’s quote. Change is something that everyone goes through. It is always change for the good no matter if its self change or habitat change.

    I would love to hear Alice Bag speak! I find that I am able to relate to her past memories coming from a Spanish speaking home and a strict father.

    I find that it is different to read a book and form your own ideas, than to hear it from the author’s mouth.

    Bag speaking at VC will help students understand why she decided to sit down to write and give insight to such personal memories.
