Author Talk: Luis Fuerte – Louie Take A Look At This: My Time With Huell Howser, 7pm
July 15 @ 7:00 pmFree
Huell Howser, the exuberant, hugely popular host of California’s Gold and other California public-television shows, was always exclaiming to the camera, “Louie, take a look at this!” Now, three years after Howser’s death, Louie—aka Luis Fuerte, an award-winning cameraman—shares all the great stories of their adventures exploring California, making memorable television, and showcasing Howser’s infectious love for the Golden State.
Rich with stories, humor, heart, and photos, this memoir of Fuerte’s time with Howser—which is also an informal biography of the beloved TV host—will charm the countless fans of the shows they worked on together.
Luis Fuerte is the five-time Emmy-award-winning former cameraman for the Huell Howser show California’s Gold, a hugely popular program that continues to run on California’s many PBS stations even since Howser’s death in 2013. The son of a Mexican immigrant, Fuerte was born in San Bernardino, California. He became a cameraman after two years in the US Navy and attending L.A. Valley College to study television engineering. Besides his Emmy awards, Fuerte has been named Latino of the Year, been inducted into two halls of fame, and won the Golden Mic Award, the International Monitor Award, and the Salt of the Earth Award. After forty-eight years in television, he’s now retired and lives with his wife in Rialto, California.
