Over the past three years, Sandra Santa Cruz, Novela Project director, has taught research and interview methods and engaged Adams State College students in the recovery of often untold stories in the San Luis Valley. The April 1 faculty lecture, "The Novela Project: The Fabric of Space and Time", begins at 7:00 p.m. in Porter Hall room 130.

The Novela Project explores the rich historical and cultural legacy that has shaped life in the San Luis Valley for over two hundred years. This talk will explore the impact of historical events on real life experiences of people in the valley.

Santa Cruz has extensive formal dance training in Mexican folkloric, Spanish dance, ballet and modern dance. She received a Bachelor of Arts in dance and a Master of Arts in theatre from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She is also the Artistic Director of Canto Al Pueblo Cultural Arts, a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to the expression of Latino/Hispano/Mexicano/Chicano art and culture.

All talks are free and the public is invited. Complimentary light refreshments will be offered. For further information on the series of lectures, contact Dr. Robert Astalos, assistant professor of physics, at 719-587-7821, or by Dr. Astalos.
