FROM Luis Rodriguez
Luis Rodriguez Writes a New Memoir Luis Rodriguez is recognized as a leading Chicano writer, best known for Always Running , his memoir of gang life in East LA. Published in 1993 it's now used in high school classes in some places, while it's censored in others. He's written 13 books of poetry, non-fiction and fiction. His fourteenth book, It Calls You Back : An Odyssey through Love, Addiction, Revolutions and Healing, is a sequel to Always Running. We welcome him back -- for the first time since 1993. Note: Rodriguez will be at Tia Chuchas on Saturday, October 15, from 5-7pm, to read and sign copies of his new book.
