The San Joaquin Valley Writers branch of the California Writers Club is pleased to present Anna Villegas as the featured speaker Saturday, Nov. 11, in the UOP Library. Before retiring, Anna taught English for forty-one years in Stockton, first at UOP and then at San Joaquin Delta College. Anna’s published work includes short stories, essays, poems, newspaper columns, and three novels. Her first novel, All We Know of Heaven, published by St. Martin’s Press, has been translated into thirteen languages. Her second novel, Swimming Lessons, was chosen as a Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club featured selection, and produced as a Lifetime Channel Original Movie of the Month by Hearst Entertainment. Anna now lives in Nevada City and says that retirement enables her to be a writer on any particular day she chooses. The event is free to the public and starts at 12:30 in the UOP Library Community Room.
