The second installment of Bookmarked!, a series from A+P highlighting literary artists of LA, welcomes Walter Thompson-Hernández, multimedia journalist for the New York Times and author of the new book The Compton Cowboys: The New Generation of Cowboys in America’s Urban Heartland. A+P’s Nereya Otieno will speak with Thompson-Hernández about women of color who have been sources of inspiration through his writing journey.
A focus of Thompson-Hernández’s work is to highlight Los Angeles culture, often showing sides that lack awareness in larger cultural conversations. In this program, Otieno and Thompson-Hernández will connect important women of color in his life and literary growth to themes and ideas present in A+P’s exhibition Collective Constellation: Selections from The Eileen Harris Norton Collection.
This program will be taking place virtually via Livestream. This means that anyone interested in attending this program from anywhere in the world is welcome, all you need is an internet connection!
