CALL FOR STORIES: TELL YOUR ¿QUE PASA, USA? STORY LIVE!
Do you have a good ¿Que Pasa, USA? story you're willing to share in front of a live audience during our ¿Que Pasa, USA? screening/event which will be held on Thursday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m. at Main Library. If so, please send your name and phone number to email@example.com. Deadline is February 18th.
The Miami-Dade Public Library System is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a special ¿Que Pasa, USA? screening/event which will be held on Thursday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library. The event is in collaboration with WPBT (who originally aired the show) and generation ñ. If you've never seen it, ¿Que Pasa? is kind of like a Cuban-American Good Times - and it first aired around the same time, between 1975-80.
We're looking for a couple of people with really, really good ¿Que Pasa, USA? stories. Stories should be no longer than 10 minutes long - shorter is even better. They can be funny or serious or silly or sad as long as it's an engaging, well-told story about a specific memory or incident or sequence of events.
Maybe you remember loving the show growing up even though you didn't speak Spanish. Or you laughed your head off (or cried) at the "Super Chaperone" episode because it reminds you of something that happened to you.
Send us your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 18th.
