6:30 PM Discussion: My Family's Slave, Lola's Story Join Professor Jody Blanco of UCSD's Literature Dept. for a discussion of "My Family's Slave," an essay biography by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Filipino American journalist Alex Tizon in the June 2017 issue of The Atlantic.

It tells the life story of a Philippine woman, Eudocia Tomas Pulido, known in the family as "Lola" who lived with the author's family for 56 years, and helped raise three generations of Tizon's family.

Tricked into servitude by the author's grandfather during the 1940s, she was "given" at the age of 18 to the author's 12-year-old mother as a personal servant.

After her death in 2011, Tizon repatriated her ashes to her birthplace in the Philippines.

It was Tizon's final published story, following his own death in March 2017.

Admission/Cost: FREE
