Mt. San Jacinto College to host award-winning author Michelle Latiolais

SAN JACINTO – The English department at Mt. San Jacinto College’s Menifee Valley Campus, in association with the MSJC Foundation and Poets & Writers, will host award-winning author Michelle Latiolais to read and to discuss the craft of creative writing. The event will be held 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, at the Menifee Valley Campus, Room 407.

Latiolais is an English professor and the co-director of Programs in Writing at the University of California Irvine. She is the author of the novels “Even Now” and “A Proper Knowledge,” as well as the short story collection “Widow.” Her latest work, “She,” follows a young girl’s determined progress across Los Angeles’s unforgiving terrain. Her odd encounters set against the backdrop of Los Angeles’s flagrant wealth, cast into relief its eccentricities and the everyday trials faced by its collection of lost souls, illuminating a poignant, unflinching portrait of loss and the search for identity in its wake.

This event is free and open to the public. The Menifee Valley Campus is located at 28237 La Piedra Road in Menifee.
