Sedano welcoming attendees to Festival de Flor y Canto: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
Writing on La Bloga, Michael Sedano recapped last week's Festival de Flor y Canto: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, hosted by the USC Libraries in conjunction with USC Visions and Voices. The three-day event reprised a landmark Chicano literary festival that USC hosted in 1973.
In his blog post, Sedano wrote:
All three days, the emotion that filled Friends Lecture Hall in Doheny Library was palpable. I could smell it, taste it in the air; felt it in the hugs and kisses of well-wishers; saw it in the abrazos and smiles shared in small and big groups; heard it in laughter and excited chatter coming from every corner and aisle in the room, in the hallway, at the reception.
Sedano helped organize last week's event, and his photography of the 1973 festival is currently featured in the exhibition Sueños by the Sea, on display now through December 15 in Doheny Memorial Library's Ground Floor Rotunda.
