Tell Your True Tale: East LA, Vol. 7 - Book presentation

This Saturday (Sept 17) we present the seventh volume of true stories to come out of my writing workshop at East LA Library.

Tell Your True Tale: East LA is packed with cool pieces about Chicano radiation scientists, blind Chinese immigrants, Alabama divorcees, love stories from Michoacan and the first ELA video store, and a young man's trip to Mexico hoping to encounter the romantic land of his ancestors.

All that and more, and all by folks who'd never written before. Great nonfiction that reads like fiction.

Here's a story I think you'll love: "Padrino" is by Lena Solis-Aguilera and recounts her relationship with a Santeria priest who became her godfather.
