A couple of weeks ago, I spoke at Tia Chucha's Cafe in Sylmar, this chingón Chicano bookstore. It's made possible thanks to the largess of legendary author Luis J. Rodriguez, author of Always Running and other great works of fiction and non-fiction. Awesome, inspirational community space--if I ever get a royalty check for my non-selling books, I just might do the same!
I wasn't able to meet Luis that night, but I'll have the honor of introducing him this Sunday at my stomping grounds that are the Fullerton Public Library.
It'll start at 2 p.m. at the library, whose address and info is below. Rodriguez will lecture on whatever the hell he wants and sell his books. My intro will praise him, of course, for his writing but also for Tia Chucha's. See you there!
