Cancelled - Carla Rachel Sameth
*This event is cancelled.
Through meditations on race, culture, and family, Carla Rachel Sameth’s book, One Day on the Gold Line: A Memoir in Essays (Black Rose Writing). tells the story of a lesbian Jewish single mother raising a black son in Los Angeles. A memoir-in-essays, it examines life’s surprising changes that come through choice or circumstance, often seemingly out of nowhere, and sometimes darkly humorous—even as the situations are dire. Carla Rachel Sameth teaches creative writing at the Los Angeles Writing Project at California State University Los Angeles and she was recently selected to be a 2019 “Pride Poet” participating in the City of West Hollywood’s One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival. She is a member of the Pasadena Rose Poets who present “poetry within reach and in unexpected places.”
