From Assemblymember Luz Rivas Desk – National Authors Day, Highlight Luis J. Rodriguez

National Authors Day

In honor of #NationalAuthorsDay, I would like to highlight Luis J. Rodriguez from #AD39, an award-winning multi-genre writer of 16 books!

Luis J. Rodriguez’s bibliography includes the bestselling memoir, “Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.” and the sequel “It Calls You Back: An Odyssey Through Love, Addiction, Revolutions & Healing.” He served as Los Angeles Poet Laureate from 2014 to 2016. He is also founding editor of Tia Chucha Press, known for cross-cultural poetry collections and anthologies, and co-founder with his wife Trini Rodriguez of Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore in #Sylmar.

Thank you, Luis, for your critical work to transform communities in the Northeast #SanFernandoValley and beyond through ancestral knowledge, the arts, literacy, and creative engagement.
