About this title


Hidden beneath the vast acreage of Dodger Stadium’s parking lot is an almost forgotten Mexican/American community that once thrived in the area known as Chavez Ravine. A journey to uncover the culture and vibrancy of the displaced community is embarked upon after a late night serendipitous meeting between Dodger third baseman, Joe Shapiro, and Dodger marketing assistant, Liz Reyes. Using diary pages from a young 1950s Chavez Ravine inhabitant to guide them, Shapiro and Reyes’s fictionalized voyage of discovery will bring to life the fascinating truths of Chavez Ravine and the forces that conspired to destroy the community.

About the Author:

Ken Aven grew up in New York City and has spent the majority of his adult life in Southern California. After earning a Master’s degree in History from California State University, Fullerton, Mr. Aven became a middle school social studies teacher in Los Angeles and San Bernardino County. Mr. Aven’s lifelong love of baseball and his great interest in social justice have combined to create his first novel, Chavez Ravine Echoes. With his two children currently in college, Mr. Aven lives with his wife and their pet dachshund, Jet, in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
