Stephen D. Gutierrez, professor of English and director of creative writing, will read from his “American Book Award”-winning collection, “Live from Fresno y Los,” Oct. 21 at Chabot College.

The noon to 1 p.m. program has been organized by Homeira Foth, English instructor, and is presented by the Chabot College Book Club. It will be in the library, 25555 Hesperian Blvd., Hayward, building 100, room 107 A&B.

Everyone is welcome. Campus parking is $2 per day, permits may be purchased from dispensers located in all campus parking lots.

This is the second book for Gutierrez, who holds a master of fine arts degree from Cornell University. His first book, “Elements,” won the Charles H. and N. Mildred Nilon Excellence in Minority Fiction Award. His stories and personal essays have appeared in many journals, and four of his plays have been produced in the Bay Area.

“Stories from Fresno y Los” was nominated for the award by Rudolfo Anaya, author of “Bless Me, Ultima,” who praised the book's "refreshing, cinematic prose style," "eye for detail" and "narrative voice."  

Gutierrez introduced “Stories from Fresno y Los” to the CSUEB campus last October as the year’s first presenter in the English Department’s Distinguished Writers Series.
