Join us for a casual talk back about the book, facilitated by award winning writer and educator, James Villanueva. We will also have a Word Cloud activity where participants can share their own “secrets of the universe.” The Word Cloud will be displayed in LHUCA’s Graffiti Building during May First Friday Art Trail.
Award winning writer and educator, James Villanueva, is the author of Remembering Slaton, Texas: Centennial Stories 1911-2011, published by The History Press and the young adult novel, Flick. He has been featured in several publications and magazines including Texas Monthly, Latino Lubbock Magazine, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He has presented and been a special guest speaker for several writing workshops and conferences throughout the United States. The teleplay for his novel, Flick, was an entry in the Austin Film Festival. The Secret Language of Prairie Dogs is Villanueva’s third full-length book.
James serves on the Wild Lark Books Fund board, a registered nonprofit entity with the mission of making publishing accessible by providing resources to historically excluded – and thus under-heard – writers. He is also the director of the Wild Lark Books Young Writers Project, which hosts writing workshops for teens throughout the South Plains and will be used to create the anthology, The Trailblazer, Young Voices of the Texas Panhandle.
James currently teaches English at Lubbock-Estacado High School. He lives in Slaton, Texas with his larger-than-life miniature dachshund, Oliver, and is busy editing his next book.
