The Inlandia Institute is responding to popular demand with this encore presentation by Luis Fuerte, award winning cameraman and author of Louie, Take a Look at This!: My Time with Huell Howser (Prospect Park Books, 2017).
Based on his years working with Huell Howser on California’s Gold, Fuerte’s book embraces the dissimilarities between Fuerte’s and Howser's personalities and backgrounds. Fuerte attributes the pair’s onscreen chemistry to this diversity, attributing their success in large part to that interplay.
As well as the stories of everyday people and those behind the scenes of much that is magic in California, Fuerte makes insightful observations about Huell. “I came to realize that he was genuinely and deeply interested in the people he interviewed and their personal stories. He was truly fascinated with his discoveries, from the stupendous to the downright ordinary. They all mattered to him.”
This event will take place at the Culver Center of the Arts located at 3824 Main Street, on July 7th at 1:30pm.
About Luis Fuerte:
Luis Fuerte is the five-time Emmy-award-winning former cameraman for the Huell Howser show California's Gold. The son of a Mexican immigrant, Fuerte was born in San Bernardino, CA and became a cameraman after two years in the US Navy and learning TV engineering at L.A. Valley College. After 48 years in television, he's now retired and lives with his wife in Rialto, CA.

Treat the child of your heart to some soft-serve tender-loving poetry and waves of laugh-provoking wit at Riverside’s Literature on the Lawn! The lyrically uplifting Michelle Gonzalez and say-it-like-it-is Brutus Chieftan are sure to leave you satisfied, August 1, 7 pm at the Riverside Public Library, located at 3581 Mission Inn Avenue in downtown Riverside.
“Coming often without / paper or pen, / as you enjoyed listening / to others read. / Somehow changing positions / from observer to facilitator / and one more time to friend” —Michelle Gonzalez, “How We Met”
“I wonder pear, how long you’re going to be free / I know you had a scent before refrigeration / You fell from a tree but my yard doesn’t have any trees / Stem at the top like a chimney, puckered at the bottom as we all are / Gonna take a bite, you know that. Gonna share it with my wife / Gonna share a taste with our wives / Some kind of crazy knowledge like Eve and Adam” —Brutus Chieftan, “Still Life in a Dead End”
This event is free and open to the public.
