Meet the author - Luis Urrea

I have been trying to keep up with Luis Urrea's public life while he is on tour promoting his new book, Queen of America. He blogs regularly on his website and shares little snippets about his travels on Facebook and Twitter. The more I read, the more excited I get for his visit to Kalamazoo in March. Did you know there will be several opportunities, including one for a Spanish-speaking audience, to see/hear Urrea in person on March 6th and 7th? You can find all the details here.

In the meantime, you might be interested to read Urrea's own words about writing Into the Beautiful North (scroll down past the description of the book). I particularly enjoy his humility, his honesty and his sense of humor, and I so look forward to witnessing them in person in just a few short weeks.
