Building 10 Parlor, Doheny Campus  

Hosted by: Creative Writing Program 

 

Salvador Plascencia is the author of the cult favorite The People of People, which has been translated into a dozen languages and named a best book of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Los Angeles Times. He is an assistant professor of creative writing at Harvey Mudd College. 

 

Angela Stubbs of Bookslut writes The People of Paper: "Plascencia has unknowingly carved himself a place in this hybrid line of quality writers. In a town known to most Angelenos for its gangs and crime, Plascencia offers up a place where we identify with its people and their stories, whether flower pickers, bee collectors, famous movie stars or even Plascencia himself.  The People of Paper is the kind of novel that asks the reader to ignore metaphor and to really listen to what the words on the page are saying to us."
