Inlandia Institute is proud to announce the publication of Güero-Güero: The White Mexican and Other Published and Unpublished Stories, a much-anticipated collection of short stories by the late Eliud Martínez (1935-2020). Martínez was an esteemed Professor Emeritus of Creative Writing and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Riverside – as well as a scholar, artist, beloved colleague, community member, husband, father, and friend.
A virtual public book launch of Güero-Güero is set for Saturday, June 5, 2021, at 3:00 PM on Zoom, and will feature a dramatic reading by Carnegie Mellon University-trained professional actor Jordan Lund, speakers from the author’s family, and a moderated conversation between Inlandia Director Emerita and former student of Martínez’s, Frances J. Vasquez, and Roberto Cantú, scholar and Professor Emeritus of Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies and (jointly) Professor Emeritus of English at California State University, Los Angeles.
