Books & Vines: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
In collaboration with the historical Los Angeles Athletic Club, Life & Thyme presents Books & Vines: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. This event is a tribute to the vibrant tapestry of Latinx storytelling, literary voices, and winemakers. From tales that transcend borders to narratives that ignite conversations, we invite you to our inaugural Books & Vines event at Los Angeles Athletic Club.
A Panel of Latinx Literary Excellence:
In conversation with Los Angeles Athletic Club’s Director of Membership, Ricky Sanchez, we welcome Bill Esparza (Food Journalist and author of L.A. Mexicano), Katherine Trejo (Author of Yefferson, Actually / En realidad, es Yefferson), and Jenny Vazquez-Newsum (Author of Untapped Leadership: Harnessing the Power of Underrepresented Leaders) to discuss their journey in literature and how their identity have shaped their work.
Showcasing Latinx Winemaking Mastery:
Books & Vines also shines a spotlight on the remarkable craftsmanship of Latinx winemakers. Sip on wines by Story of Soil and meet winemaker Jessica Gasca.
