Cecile Pineda touches on issues of displacement as she talks about 40 years of the writing life, the breakthroughs, the discouragements, and the daily practice. She will read and sign copies of Three Tides: Writing at the Edge of Being. Time will be set aside for questions and answers. Ms. Pineda will be introduced by Prof. Marcial Gonzalez of the UCB English Faculty.
Pineda is widely recognized as the author of nine published works of fiction and non-fiction. She is the winner of the Gold Medal from the California Commonwealth Club
and nominee for the 2015 Neustadt International Prize for Literature. Like the Nobel, it is awarded not for any one work, but for an entire body of work.
