On the road

flatiron.jpg By the week of June 9, my book about Mexico City, First Stop in the New World, should be in stores across the U.S. Hence, for the next three weeks or so I will be in el norte promoting it.

I will be appearing on various radio programs, but also making appearances to talk about the book and sign copies.


Here is the schedule of events:

Thursday, June 12 Idlewild Books, 7pm 12 West 19 Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) New York

This event is sponsored by the Mexican Cultural Institute and a cocktail reception will follow.

Tuesday, June 17 Housing Works Bookstore Café, 6:30 pm 206 Crosby Street (one block east of Broadway between Houston and Prince Streets) New York

This event will be a conversation between the great Guatemalan-American novelist Francisco Goldman and me. There will be beer.

If you're around any of those places, please come. And if you know anyone in those cities, please spread the word. As far as the blog is concerned, I hope to keep updating it while I'm on the road. In any case, keep watching this space.
