SAN LEANDRO–(be)Longing: Woven Into the Fabric of Our Community
October 8 – December 31Free
San Leandro–This fall, the San Leandro Public Library is kicking off (be)Longing:Woven into the Fabric of Our Community. This series of intergenerational community events will promote the learning about and embracing of the diverse cultures that make up San Leandro.
Everyone is invited to explore an interactive exhibit of original handwoven textiles from the town of San Sebastian, El Salvador. Experience an audiovisual demonstration to learn about how weavers use the town’s historic telares to create one-of-a-kind, handmade, vividly striking textiles. A poetry walk aligning with the exhibit will feature the poetry of Salvadoran author Javier Zamora.
