Exhibit Honoring Late Writer Michele Serros Opens at California State University, Channel Islands

By Tracy Lehr

downloadOxnard-born poet and writer Michele Serros left some of her prized possession to California State University, Channel Islands. They went on display on Valentine’s Day, her favorite holiday.

Serros died of oral cancer in Berkeley in 2015, at the age of 48.

The exhibit, inside the John Spoor Broome Library, on the Camarillo campus includes her correspondence with writer Judy Blume.

Blume encouraged Serros to write after she wrote to Blume and told the author about her parents divorce.  They stayed in touch.

The exhibit also includes her key to the city of Oxnard, TV scripts she wrote for George Lopez, skateboards, punk rock records and a desk her mother gave her.

Copies of the books that made her famous, including Chicana Falsa and How to be a Chicana Role Model, are also on display. Read Rest of Article Here
