Event description
Join us and author Rachel González-Martin for the launch of her latest book, with a dj set by Chulita Vinyl Club

About this Event

Join us at the Texas Folklife Gallery Thursday December 12th to celebrate the release of Dr. Rachel Valentina González's latest book Quinceañera Style: Social Belongings and Latinx Consumer Identities. Resistencia bookstore will have copies of the book available for sale and Chulita Vinyl Club will be DJing a set.    

“This is a great book—a sophisticated, intersectional, and transnational project. González takes an innovative approach to quinceañeras that considers the complex, post-nationalist, global economy as well as some post-ethnic but gendered practices.”

Free and open to the public with RSVP

This event is supported in part by the board and members of Texas Folklife, Red Salmon Arts, The University of Texas at Austin Department of Mexican American & Latina/o Studies, and by awards from the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
