March 19th at 7:00 pm I will be doing a live reading at "The Book Works" in Del Mar, CA. The store is located off of Via de la Valle. I urge all of you (since I know this blog reaches millions of readers) to set aside your plans for that Saturday evening temporarily and come to support me. I will be opening with three other SDSU MFA students for two better-known authors. My reading will be the first in the group and should last for approximately five minutes. Please come support!
Also, "Canciones para los padres" has been revised and updated. After workshopping the story, I smoothed out a few kinks (included the fact that my Spanish was off in the title and NO ONE LET ME KNOW!). I hope you enjoy the final version, which should hopefully be published sometime next week in "The Daily Aztec" at San Diego State University.
