Boston Boys Club en Miami

From Johnny Diaz's Beantown Cuban blog:

Ahh, Miami. A carnival of construction cranes. Tropical breezes that soothe your skin and comfort your soul. Flashy zoom-zoom-zoom cars that whoosh by you in blurs on I-95. New condo towers jutting into the sky like expensive watches. Home and I love it.

It's so good to be back in my hometown. I'm here for two book readings.  If you're in town and looking for something to do tonight (Thursday) at 8 p.m., please drop by Books and Books, 265 Aragon Ave. in Coral Gables for a book reading and discussion of gay Latino life and the creative writing process. Boston Boys Club is not just a fun light read; it's also heavy enough to hold down your towel from flying away into the Altantic Ocean at the 12th Street beach. So it's a good read and a towel weight.

If you're in Broward, I'm headed there too. I have another book reading at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 2, at Borders Book and Music, 2240 E. Sunrise Blvd in Fort Lauderdale (across from the Galleria or "Gayeria" Mall.)

I look forward to both events. This feels like a homecoming for me and I'm glad to be back.

If you can read in Spanish, El Nuevo Herald (The Miami Herald's Spanish sister paper) published a very nice article in today's paper on the book and how I grew up in Miami. Here is a link to the story. The story means a lot to me because I used to be a reporter at The Miami Herald but more importantly, because my parents can finally read something about me en espanol.
