Barrio Writers to Present at Librería Martinez This Sunday

Who says good things don't happen in SanTana? Mostly me, but I praise when need be, and much love toward a great event this Sunday at world-famous Librería Martínez. Over the summer, the bookstore hosted Barrio Writers, a group of about 30 local high schoolers who kept journals ala the Freedom Writers of Long Beach fame. Mentoring them along the way was local author Sara Rafael Garcia, author of the acclaimed Las Niñas, which details her recollections of growing up in SanTana during the early 1980s. She and other authors of note (not included in that group but in the author audience is meself)  will be in the audience this Sunday, though, as the Barrio Writers read from their journals. Event starts at 3 p.m., Librería Martínez is at 1200 N. Main St., Ste. 100-D, and the phone number is (714) 973-7900. Help out a great program, and a wonderful bookstore. And now, the obvious YouTube clip:
