Nationally recognized author Michele Serros kicks off National Women’s History month Tuesday, March 27 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM at the Houston Community College Southwest West Loop Campus Auditorium, 5601 West Loop South.
Ms. Serros will be reading from her books How to Be a Chicana Role Model and Chicana Falsa and Other Stories of Death, Identity and Oxnard. She will also discuss themes related to gender issues. The readings will be followed by a question and answer session with students and a book signing.
Ms. Serros has also written for several publications, including the Los Angeles Times, Ms. Magazine, CosmoGirl and The Washington Post. She also wrote for the ABC television sitcom, “The George Lopez Show,” which she said was “an opportunity that hopefully with my contribution opened the door for a wider representation of Latinos in the mass media.”
In addition to her books, Serros has contributed commentaries for National Public Radio. She was also selected by The Getty Research Institute and Poetry Society of America to have her poetry placed on MTA buses throughout Los Angeles County.
