Book Release Party and Reading
Dear friends and supporters, join me to celebrate the release of my newest book, In the Shadows of the Freeway: Growing Up Brown & Queer. Pueblo High is the perfect location to launch this book, since I graduated from the school in 1973 and this is where the last chapter of my coming-of-age memoir takes place.
I am grateful for the support that my my previous book, La Calle has received over the last ten years and I have grown accustomed to being asked, “When is your next book coming out?” Well, here it is! This may not be what you expected, but it is what I felt compelled to write.
Come learn about my new book, why I wrote it, the process that led to its publication and meet some of the IAMME students from Pueblo High. I think this new book contributes strongly to the history of Mexican Americans in Tucson and I consider it a prequel to La Calle. Paperback copies of In the Shadows of the Freeway will be on sale for a discounted cash price of $15.00 at this event.
I hope you can make it and I appreciate your support,
