Between fighting gentrification and anti-Semitic fools, la naranja is brimming with activities for Latinos looking for a good time and everyone else willing to go native! Today, I'll promote three such events happening in downtown SanTana: pocho supreme Lalo Alcaraz at Calacas doing his chingaderas, public intellectual Gregorio Luke preaching on Abraham Lincoln and Benito Juarez at the historic Yost Theater, and Latino-lit blogger supreme Daniel Olivas moderating a discussion on the anthology Latinos in Lotusland at the world's best bookstore, Libreria Martinez!
