We apologize for the recent disruption of service, and are pleased to report that the power has been restored to the Main Library. We have returned to our normal Monday schedule: the Main Library and Brookfield and Eastmont Branches are now open. All other locations will resume normal operations on Tuesday, January 23. We appreciate the community's support and patience over the past few days.
Three Tides: Writing at the Edge of Being
Author of many works, both fiction and nonfiction, written over a period of 40 years, Cecile Pineda describes the process involved in writing, and uses the theme of displacement that permeates our collective experiences - personal, cultural, and environmental. From the devastation of Katrina to the burial of a rice-growing village by a toxic land fill, she documents the upheavals that inspire her writing and result in collective losses she has documented in her work.
