Consider taking a book on your ride to the Eastside. Josefina Lopez, CASA 0101’s artistic director and author of “Real Women Have Curves”  (the feature film started as a play which premiered at CASA 0101,) just published a novel with the tantalizing name of “Hungry Woman in Paris.”

Now, be aware that taking the train to the Eastside might not be an option yet. According to this article found on LA.Curbed.Com, “it’s unlikely that the line will open in June.” You can check the MTA’s own Gold Line website for everything except an opening date. My favorite item on the site’s menu: the Eastside Flavors Map and the Station Overview. Each station artwork and design reflect the surrounding community. For example, at the Little Tokyo station, “the canopies represent a Zen archery bow” while at the Mariachi Plaza station, “the shape of the main canopy recalls the fans used by Mexican folkloric dancers” and that’s only two out of the eight new stations of the Gold Line extension to East Los Angeles.  

As far as I know, CASA 0101’s new play will open as scheduled on June 19th.
