Quick Notes for the Week of Jan. 23


Silicon Valley Reads Kickoff Is This Thursday

Journey to New BeginningsDe Anza will host the Jan. 26 kickoff for the 2023 Silicon Valley Reads campaign, with an on-campus event featuring three authors whose work aligns with the theme of “Journey to New Beginnings.”

The 7 p.m. event will be held at the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC). It will also be livestreamed for those who can't attend in person. Admission is free and advance registration is required for both.

Those attending in person can also view a related exhibition in the Euphrat Museum of Art, which will be open from 6-7 p.m. and after the program until 9 p.m. The exhibit features art and poetry by five local artists who have been instrumental in creating "spaces of belonging" and inspiring new beginnings.
