Zócalo goes to Guadalajara *

zocalologo1.jpgZócalo Public Square is decamping in early December to the Guadalajara International Book Fair, with some assistance from the National Endowment for the Arts and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. One of the panels is called What Makes an L.A. Writer and will feature former LA Weekly editor Laurie Ochoa moderating Yxta Maya Murray, DJ Waldie, Gary Phillips, and Jonathan Gold (her husband.) There's also a Zócalo panel, moderated by Gregory Rodriguez, asking how Mexican Americans see Mexico.

* And LA Observed too: Veronique de Turenne is moderating three panels at Guadalajara, one of them with LA Observed contributor Jenny Price.
