STC MID-VALLEY STUDENTS ATTEND WOMEN WRITERS SERIES




STC MID-VALLEY STUDENTS ATTEND WOMEN WRITERS SERIES


Club sponsor and Ascender instructor, Esmeralda Macias, invited students to attend the Women Writers Speakers Series on the STC Mid-Valley campus. The series explores and discusses women writers in history and how their prose and ideas continue to influence many today in and out of the classroom. On February 19, Ascender students Franky Lopez and Iselle Felix attended a presentation by Crystal Rodriguez and Patrick Garcia about author Gloria Anzaldua, who was born in the Rio Grande Valley. In 1991, Anzaldúa won a National Endowment for the Arts award for fiction and the 1991 Lesbian Rights Award.

Ascender student, Isella Feliz said, “I had so much fun learning about Gloria Anzaldua, a Chicana, feminist and lesbian writer who stood up for the Spanish language 50 years ago in the valley.” Franky Lopez added, “I’m so glad and proud that Espanol es mi primer leguaje!”
