Mexico's Golden Age of Film produced numerous stars, but none bigger than Pedro Infante. During his memorable career, the actor and singer starred in over 60 films and crooned his way through 350 songs.
On January 18, 2008, at 6:00 pm, contributing speaker at the Sacramento Public Library, Fred Dobb, will be leading a discussion on Infante at the South Natomas Community Center on 2921 Truxel Road in Sacramento. In addition to the talk, there will be a reception, where wine, cheese and other refreshments will be served.
If you've not heard Dobb speak, this is an event you'll truly want to catch. Dobb is a scholar who has made Latin culture his passion. Over this last year, his discussions at the Central Library on Carmen Miranda and Cantinflas (Mario Moreno Reyes) were packed.
The charge to attend is $20.00, with proceeds going to the Mexican Cultural Center of Northern California. Tickets may be purchased at the MCCNC on 1010 8th Street, Suite 101, on weekdays, between 8 am and 2 pm. Other ticket outlets are La Esperanza Bakery, 5044 Franklin Blvd., Sacramento, 95820, and Carniceria Lopez, 5550 Franklin Blvd., Sacramento, 95820.
