In his latest collection of short stories, "Anywhere But L.A." (Bilingual Press), Daniel Olivas provides a vivid and realistic portrait of Chicanos and Mexicanos trying to find their place in the world. Full of humor and insight, Olivas' characters alternately amuse and terrify, often doing both in the span of a few pages. Olivas gives a glimpse into the complex and fascinating lives of people who are struggling to make sense of their lives.
Olivas will read from his collection followed by Q&A and a signing.
