1:00 pm: 2018 WRITING FROM INLANDIA BOOK LAUNCH
November 30, 2019 –
Celebrate the launch of the 2018 Writing from Inlandia anthology, marking ten years of ongoing creative writing workshops.
Dedicated to Inlandia’s founder Marion Mitchell-Wilson (1946-2015), this event will take place at 1 pm on her birthday, November 30, at the Arlington Branch Library, in honor of her vision for Inlandia’s creative writing workshops program. The Arlington Branch Public Library is located at 9556 Magnolia Ave.
Quiet basements and rooms tucked from view in libraries and senior centers across Inland cities have been home to Inlandia Institute’s free ongoing creative writing workshops for more than a decade.
Now, the time has come for our latest crop of authors to see their work in print. The 2018 Writing from Inlandia anthology brings together 84 authors in 426 pages.
The result is a heartfelt collection of stories and poems, a book that encapsulates the diversity of the rich human experience just east of the west coast.
Hear the work of participants as they read from the anthology. Scheduled readers include: Carlos Cortés, Laurel Cortés, Tim Hatch, Frances J. Vasquez, Nannette Friedley, Romaine Washington, Jane O’Shields-Hayner, Shelby Harrington, José Chavez, Judy Kohnen, Cindi Neisinger, Tom Vaden, Delia Vaden, Richard Gonzalez, Cynthia Pringle, Sylvia Clarke, Wil Clarke, Phyllis Maynard, Phyllis Reis, Mary Rodriguez Briggs, Joan Jones, S J Perry, Celena Diana Bumpus, Alan VanTassel, Shirley Petro-Timura, Gary Neuharth, Lillian Solorio, Morris Mendoza, Dora Harmon, Roberto Murillo, and Scharlett Stowers.

1:30 pm: CONVERSATIONS AT THE CULVER WITH ERIC SCHWITZGEBEL
December 1, 2019 –
You're cordially not invited to join Inlandia Institute and Eric Schwitzgebel at the Culver. Just kidding, we're not jerks. Schwitzgebel's book, A Theory of Jerks and Other Philosophical Misadventures is funny and accessible.
Have you ever wondered about the essence of jerkitude? Asked whether your driverless car should kill you so that others may live? Considered the ethics of professional ethicists? Eric Schwitzgebel turns a philosopher's eye on these and other burning questions. A common theme is the ragged edge of the human intellect, where moral or philosophical reflection begins to turn against itself, lost among doubts and improbable conclusions.
Eric Schwitzgebel is Professor of Philosophy at UC Riverside. His most recent book is A Theory of Jerks and Other Philosophical Misadventures. He has published widely on self-knowledge, the nature of belief, moral psychology, the nature of consciousness, and science fiction.
“Imagine the nature-documentary voice-over: ‘Here we see the jerk in his natural environment. Notice how he subtly adjusts his dominance display to the Italian-restaurant situation.” —Eric Schwitzgebel
Free and open to the public, followed by light refreshments and book sales.
In partnership with UCR Arts and the UCR Center for Ideas and Society.
