_DSC7461Maria Ure & Story Time in Spanish at Pages Bookstore – Kids Event

Join us to hear Maria Ure, founder and director of Spanish in Action, for a Story Time in Spanish. Her approach is radically different from teaching methods commonly seen in school settings, as she personally sits down with the kids and delivers her lessons through song. It’s her innate gift for teaching and ability to create beautiful songs for each lesson that set her apart as a teacher and as a school.

A Drunken Reading Series Fosters Community in Los Angeles

Drunken Masters, which is part of the larger series of cultural events 90x90LA, invites writers to present their work to a group of sauced professionals who provide instant critique.

And, unlike the talent show, Drunken Masters isn’t a tournament, so there’s no voting or elimination.
