Dragonfly Lecture on April 29

What some see as annoying weeds, others treasure as native plants important to indigenous people — foods, medicines, and more. And what some don't see at all are vital signs, forgotten murals tucked here and there throughout the Inland region. 

Explore Inland backways and back alleys in a search for "Vital Signs and Lavish Weeds" with poet Juan Delgado at Dorothy Ramon Learning Center's next Dragonfly Lecture on Monday, April 29.  

Juan Delgado is an award-winning poet who is unflinching witness to voices, lives, and landscapes often overlooked. He is a professor of English and director of the M.F.A. program in Creative Writing at California State University, San Bernardino. 

The lecture is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. April 29 at Dorothy Ramon Learning Center's San Manuel Gathering Hall, 127 N. San Gorgonio Ave., Banning. Your $5 will help the nonprofit Learning Center save and share Southern California's Native American cultures, languages, history, and traditional arts. Information: 951.849.7736.
