A book has been chosen for 2015’s One Book One Campus read. The title is Always Running: La Vida Loca, by Luis J. Rodriguez. It’s about the author’s experiences in the gang scene in Los Angeles. This is a riveting read, and it has earned the 1993 Carl Sandburg Literary Award for Non-Fiction, and many other accolades.
Mr. Rodriguez was just selected as the Poet Laureate of Los Angeles. He will be writing poems talking about the amazingly vibrant city. In his acceptance speech, he spoke about his experiences with the public library.
We are excited to be able to incorporate this powerful book into our college. There will be more information about activities in the coming months.
