[Cheap Thrills]

LUIS RODRIGUEZ: Author and gang prevention activist Luis Rodriguez reads from his work at 8 p.m. Wednesday, February 15, in the Modern Languages Auditorium on the UA campus. Rodriguez, who grew up in East Lost Angeles, has won awards for his Poems Across the Pavement and The Concrete River. He's also the winner of the Carl Sandburg Award for Non-fiction. An informal reception will follow the free reading.

BLOCK KIDS: Women in Construction say bring your block-loving builders in grades one through six to El Con Mall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, February 11, to compete for prizes and savings bonds. Each builder will be given 100 plastic blocks and one hour to create a nifty structure. Judges will be from the construction industry.

RELEASE STEFAN: Round Up O' Fun Productions says round 'em up and party in honor of local musician Stefan George's latest cassette release, Stef's Blue Bait Shop. George has had a lot of people clamoring for his so-fine blues, and he's accommodated them with this recent collection of traditional and original acoustic tunes. We hear his "Cry Me a River" is a heartbreaker. George will be on hand playing and partying from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday, February 10, at the Southwest Center for Music, 2175 N. Sixth Ave. Admission is $5 and you can get your tape at reduced cost.

GREET GREELEY: He's the Irish priest who authored a study of American Catholics' sex lives (no, it's not short), and who has drummed up his fair share of controversy with his novels and opinions. Father Andrew Greeley will be on hand to sign copies of his books from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, February 10, at the ASUA bookstore on the UA campus. For more information call 6218475.
