We have so much to be proud of in San Joaquin County. And one thing we can be very proud of is artist and poet Richard Rios. He will be speaking at the Cesar Chavez Central Library on Monday, April 8th at 6:30 pm as part of the Live from Cesar Chavez! series sponsored by the Library & Literacy Foundation for San Joaquin County.
Mr. Rios will talk about his new memoir, Songs from the Barrio, which details his growing up in Modesto with his Mexican-born mother and five siblings, finding his way out of the barrio through his art, and coming to understand his mother's request to "never forget you are a Mexican."
Copies of Mr. Rios' book will be available for purchase and signing at the end of the program.
Mark your calendar to come hear this wonderful presentation and be inspired!
