April 21, 2015

On Earth Day April 22, 2015 and during April’s National Poetry Month,  Los Angeles Poet Laureate Luis Rodriquez will speak and read from 6-9pm at Ventura College, 4667 Telegraph Road, Ventura CA 93003 as part of a free One Book One Campus Celebration from 6-9pm in Guthrie Hall located on the west side of campus. Parking by the gym is $2; Guthrie Hall is the octogonal shaped building almost directly east from the gym.

This semester, a number of my students in both classes chose to read his memoir about gang life,  Always Running. Students then gave presentations about their books and had the option to make a trailer or to create a blog. The point of their presentations was to convince their classmates to read their book, and in the case of Rodriguez, to be enthused and interested in attending this event. Which they are!

Here’s a trailer students made for Always Running which does a wonderful job of catching the spirit of the book and shows a lot of creativity:

Here’s the review of Always Running this group wrote.

I will add links to the other students’ websites they created ASAP; each group took a different approach, but they were all great and I am proud of the work they did as groups as well as individually.

As you can imagine, we are very pleased to have Luis Rodriguez visit us, read, speak, and sign books on Earth Day!

We expect a full house so overflow will be in the library classroom for a live feed.

Here’s a pdf of the Luis Rodriguez flyer.
