WRITE TO READ: Author Salon Fundraiser for the Oakland Literacy Coalition

The OLC is delighted to gather our community together in the beautiful light- and art-filled Artthaus Studios for a conversation with three authors who have used their voice and their stories to illuminate social justice issues: Leticia Hernández-Linares, poet, teacher, and author of the children’s book Alejandria Fights Back! / ¡La Lucha de Alejandria!, Naheed Hasnat Senzai, award-winning author of middle grade books Shooting KabulEscape from Aleppo, and Ticket to Indiaand Traci Chee, author of young adult novels We Are Not Free, The Reader Trilogy, and A Thousand Steps into Night.

Moderating our salon about the power of literature to further social justice will be Michelle Walton from The Collective – Oakland, a bookstore which sparks cultural well-being through literature.

Purchase books ahead from our bookstore partner, The Collective – Oakland, and pick them up at the event where you can have them signed by the authors:

Traci Chee’s books

Naheed Hasnat Senzai’s books

Mingle with old friends, meet new friends, get inspired, enjoy refreshments, chat with our authors and moderator, and take the opportunity to purchase signed copies of their books.
