  • The Los Angeles Convention Center 1201 S Figueroa St, Meeting Room Level, Rm 402 AB Los Angeles, CA, 90015 (map)

Come hear Erica Wurth, author of CRAZY HORSE'S GIRLFRIEND, speak about “Rewriting the Iconic West: Native and Latino Writers on Crafting Change” as part of the Associated Writer’s Program. The event is on March 31st in Room 402 AB of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Filled with complex characters overcoming and being overcome by the circumstances of their surroundings, CRAZY HORSE’S GIRLFRIEND thoroughly shakes up cultural preconceptions of what it means to be Native American today. Margaritte is a sharp-tongued, drug-dealing, sixteen-year-old Native American who dreams of escaping a Colorado town crippled by poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse before the daily ramifications of teen pregnancy eat her alive.
