Religion Digital, Benedictine nun and theologian Sr. Teresa Forcades will be launching her book La teología feminista en la historia (Fragmenta, 2011) in the United States for the first time this Saturday, March 15th at the El Buen Pastor Catholic Bookstore, 215 W. Rosecrans Ave. in Compton, California. The event, organized by the Instituto Latino and the bookstore on the occasion of International Women's Day, will be split into two sessions -- the first in English at 9:00 a.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.) and the second in Spanish at 5:00 p.m. (registration begins at 4:30 p.m.). NOTE: There seems to be a discrepancy on the timing of the Spanish session between the publisher's website that shows that session beginning at 4:00 p.m. and the bookstore website that says 5. I would say, aim for the earlier time to make sure you get in.
An entrance fee of $15 ($8 for students) will be charged and Sr. Forcades will be signing copies of her book. The East LA musical group Las Cafeteras will also be performing. Seating capacity is limited so come early!
