1:00 PM Books Signing: Christy Hale The Lemon Grove Historical Society and the Lemon Grove Library will unveil Christy Hale's new, bilingual book, "Todos Iguales/All Eqal," exploring the landmark 1931 desegregation case in Lemon Grove's lone grammar school. Replete with an original corrida, the book is geared to all ages, but especially to youngsters. Alvarez v. School Board was the first successful, court-ordered school desegregation case in the U. S. and was cited as precedent by Thurgood Marshall et al in the famous 1954 Brown v. Board of Education. Meet author-artist Hale, bring your questions, enjoy refreshments and book signing, and celebrate the release of this important book (Lee & Low 2019).

8:00 PM Film: Finsterworld Finsterworld is an ensemble piece with twelve main characters who are gradually shown to interconnect with each other. Set in a sunlit country of shiny, happy people, offers a visually stunning look at the lives of contemporary Germans over the course of a single day. In each case, something is missing, and these deceptively simple scenarios give way to incisive observations about German identity, leavened with warmth and laughter to create a darkly humorous modern fairy tale.

Finsterworld is part of the German Currents Kino Series.

9:00 PM Music: Metalachi On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico, circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock 'n Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilizers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill-advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children were born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just outside of Juarez Mexico—mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words Paranoid and Black Sabbath. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor...but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today.

Admission/Cost: $20
