CROSSING THE BORDER by Daniel A. Olivas

From award-winning fiction writer and book critic, Daniel A. Olivas, comes his first collection of poetry, Crossing the Border.

These narrative poems delve deeply into the many ways we cross borders of race, culture, language, religion, and privilege. With humor and pathos, Olivas draws from his own life and from the stories of others to serve as a witness to the great variety of experiences that make us human. With grace and eloquence, he invites readers to cross these borders with him on this intense but necessary journey.

OPEN SPACE VISION SURVEY
Open spaces play a vital role in enhancing our quality of life -- they offer us a break from our busy lives to connect with nature and with each other. In Los Angeles, this includes our scenic mountain views, our world famous beaches, an intricate network of rivers and trails, and thousands of acres of parklands.

Your feedback for this short 3-5 minute survey will help shape the future of open space in Los Angeles.

ControlPanel LA is your source for information about the City of Los Angeles' expenditures, revenues, payroll, purchasing, special funds, and more.  It's your City - take control.
