Speaking Today

I am speaking today (Saturday, 05/26) at the California Writers Club in Fremont on the Devry College campus, 6600 Dumbarton Circle,(rm 223) . All are welcome. I think I’m talking about  The Accidental Activist and why I see ‘Fiction as a Vehicle to Social Justice.’ But you never know!

The meeting starts at 2pm and I speak at 3pm. Maybe see you there?

Alon Shalev is the author of The Accidental Activist and A Gardener’s Tale. He is the Executive Director of the San Francisco Hillel Foundation, a non-profit that provides spiritual and social justice opportunities to Jewish students in the Bay Area. More on Alon Shalev at http://www.alonshalev.com/ and on Twitter (@alonshalevsf).

  1. Hi, Alon – Hope your talk goes well, (already went well?!), and it turns out as you hoped. If I was anywhere near you, I would certainly try to get there. I think the subject matter is very valid, very real. Will you be posting your speech?


  2. So sorry I wasn’t able to make it. Very interesting topic. I can’t understand why yet it is interesting. LOL Maybe it would have made more sense to me had I heard you talk. There is some truth in everything I believe.
