Live in the Los Angeles area or traveling through? I hope you'll stop in for a reading, Q&A and book signing for AMERICA LIBRE at Vroman's Books, the oldest and largest independent bookseller in the L.A. area. If you have friends nearby, I'll hope you'll spread the word. (But please don't tell the Governator. He thinks Latinos are hot-blooded enough as it is.)
Award-winning composer/performer Max Vasquez will be on hand for an acoustic set and will also premiere his composition "America Libre" inspired by the novel.

About AMERICA LIBRE...
AMERICA LIBRE is a gripping fictional account of U.S. immigration issues in the near-future where Latino-rights groups riot against the violence of border patrols and vigilante justice reigns in the American Southwest. Against this tumultuous backdrop, Afghan vet Manolo Suarez finds himself romantically drawn to a Latina radical activist, threatening his marriage, his family, and everything he believes about patriotism. Originally self-published, AMERICA LIBRE went on to win a 2008 International Latino Book Award and was published the following year by Grand Central Publishing (formerly Warner Books).
