Shop on Main Street
A couple of weeks after world-famous Librería Martínez announced it was perilously close to shutting down, Latino USAs authors heeded the call and began booking gigs. Their promises are now bearing fruit (except Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez of Dirty Girls Social Club fame, who flat-out snubbed the bookstore one recent Friday night, leaving dozens of fans disappointed), and the biggest name is now in town: Sandra Cisneros. The famed Chicana author doesnt have a book or cause to hawkshe knows that her appearance will draw hundreds of people and thousands of dollars in much-needed revenue to the bookstore, and that says more about Cisneros character than any award-winning novella shell ever publish. Support local treasures by supporting one of the best authors in America.
