"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
You are invited to attend a discussion event as part of the It Really is a River exhibition at The Claremont Colleges Library. Esteemed printmaker Daniel Gonzalez and best-selling author Tim DeRoche (Pomona Class of 1992) will be in conversation about their 2018 book collaboration, ‘The Ballad of Huck & Miguel’. Tim’s reworking of the classic Huck Finn tale coupled with Daniel’s intricate linocut print illustrations reimagines both the original work, and the Los Angeles River, in invigorating and thought-provoking ways.
The conversation – spanning printmaking, creative collaboration, and environmental storytelling – will be introduced and moderated by public historian and LA River X founder Tilly Hinton along with professor of literature and director of the Harvey Mudd College Makerspace Jeff Groves.
The accompanying photographic exhibition in the North Lobby Gallery runs until May 31. This event is part of The People’s Archive, a collaboration between LA River X, Pomona College and The Claremont Colleges Library, with generous support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. This event is free and open to all – no registration required!
Parking is free on streets surrounding the venue.
Wednesday, April 19, 2023, 4:15pm – 5:15pm at the Founders Room, North Entrance, The Claremont Colleges Library.
