The author of “Patron Democracy” visits Laredo August 12, 2015. For some of you, this will be a short notice but if you are a regular reader, know that you can still catch Fernando Piñon at 6:00pm at the Laredo Public Library’s multipurpose room. He will be speaking about his latest book, “Searching for America in the Streets of Laredo: the Mexican American Experience in the Anglo American Narrative.”
Those Laredo Fire Fighters sure are a varied bunch. A shockingly negative press release last week covered by Bordertown Blues, and a shockingly positive press release today. I guess they wanted a good balance 🙂
It is not something I might pick up but I do applaud Ruben Gabriel for having the talent and dedication to write a book.
We do have plenty of local authors to celebrate. If you are looking for the other end of the spectrum, check out the erotic novel recently published by Bonnie Mata of Laredo (originally Mirando City). I have yet to read it but I know the background story of how it was written about so I am definitely interested.
