July 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Lydia R. Otero is a writer, historian, and activist who will be discussing the process of writing their third book, L.A. Interchanges: A Brown & Queer Archival Memoir. In this book talk, Dr. Otero will share how they combined the intimacy of a personal memoir with the rigor of documentary history, using photographs, archival documents, and compelling storytelling to craft a passionate narrative of personal growth amid the political and cultural currents of 1980s Los Angeles.
