I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Source to host book release party

Alhambra Source will host a book release party on June 9th at Gallery Nucleus. The book, titled "Alhambra Source: Voices from the New American Suburb," is a collection of 50 stories selected from five years of publication. Nearly one hundred residents have contributed to the site since it launched in 2010. They are a diverse group of contributors — ranging from high school students to retiress and who combined speak more than 10 languages. As stated in the book's introduction, "The collection demonstrates how community members can tell Alhambra stories and impact their community in a way that no traditional newsroom or reporter from the outside possibly could."
Alhambra Source is part of a research intiative at the University of Southern California School for Communication and Journalism. Since 2008 a multidisciplinary team of scholars, Metamorphosis Project researchers, journalists and stduents have been investigating how local news can impact civic engagement and bridge ethnic barriers.
Seven winners of the 2015 Alhambra Source | Sam and Jackie Wong Scholarship Contest will also be in attendance to read excerpts from their essays. Each winner of the contest, which asked high school and college students to discuss their heritage, will be awarded $500.
The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for a suggested donation of $15. Join us for readings, a chance to check out the book, and food from 101 Noodle Express, Bahn Mi My Tho, La Cafeina, and Wahib's.
Please RSVP, and let us know if you would like us to reserve a copy of the limited supply book for you.
