Chicano Alumni Book Club: "Burro Genius: A Memoir"

Tuesday, February 15, 2022
6:00 to 7:00 p.m. (PST)

Hosted By: Chicano Alumni Club

The Chicano Alumni Book Club is hosting a review of Victor Villasenor's book "Burro Genius: A Memoir." Villasenor struggled with extreme dyslexia only to be diagnosed at the age of forty-four, but overcame that challenge and has written 5 best sellers. He describes how his dyslexia drew the ire of his teachers at the English-only American school in the 1940s. Despite teachers who beat him because he could not speak English, he has become one of the premier writers of our time. Please join us to review this riveting memoir by registering to receive the Zoom link or join us in person.
