Fishing for Stories in East L.A.
Last week MobileWest pulled into sunny southern California and parked at the East Los Angeles Public Library. The trailer sits in an idyllic spot next to a pond where Angelenos fish, toddlers waddle after ducks, high school students turn up the radio, and one can always find a cart selling elote (corn-on-the-cob) or shaved ice.
Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina, along with the great folks from our partner station KPCC, welcomed the booth to this historically diverse neighborhood. East L.A. is home to the largest Chicano and Latino communities in the United States.
We look forward to hearing mas historias del barrio and sampling some of the best tamales and tacos in California or dare I say, the United States.
