Literary Events Coordinator
Jackie Garcia (she/her/ella) was Tia Chucha’s 2022 Summer Arts Bookstore Intern and became the Literary Events Coordinator that Fall. She was born and raised in Los Angeles and is a graduate of Wesleyan University, where she majored in American Studies and Latin American Studies. At Wesleyan, she wrote her honors thesis on Indigenous migrant women’s narratives within film, literature, and organizing efforts. She has previously worked mentoring students in college access programs and has been involved in domestic work organizing efforts. Throughout her time in college, she co-found Wesleyan’s Rebel Eaters Club, a group dedicated to body/self acceptance and combating diet culture, as well as Wesleyan’s POC Comedy Collective, a group where comics of color explore sketch, improv, and stand-up comedy. Since returning to Los Angeles, she hopes to find ways to get involved in her SFV community again and explore/support San Fernando Valley’s thriving art/music scene. Jackie loves going to concerts, watching films, and reading!
