All of this year, lifelong santaneros Robert Flores has reviewed beer and pot for the Weekly—not a bad gig for someone with no formal journalism experience and who had spent the previous 35 years of his life working as a butcher, right? But Flores is actually an author in his own right, having published the hilarious memoir #FuckCancer The True Story of How Robert the Bold Kicked Cancer’s Ass. And he’ll be reading from it this Thursday at the SanTana Library.
Details are straightforward and can be found on the Facebook page, but the basics: 6:30 p.m. at the Library, 29 Civic Center Plaza, SanTana, and lecture is FREE, while books are BARATO. I’ll be introducing Robert, then hanging out in the crowd afterward. Anyone in the local beer industry should go and introduce yourselves to the man and pitch your suds to him. See you there!
