The new Tell Your True Tale; East Los Angeles book is out, the product of a workshop I did with a great group of eight new writers.
The stories are again fantastic — about Albert Einstein in East L.A., a Czech “almost blind” boy growing up in a Communist boarding home, a young man going to Tijuana to help a deported friend return, a woman on her deathbed remembering the last time she saw her kids, and a girl on her way to Mexico, a child bride.
Check it out, on sale at Amazon.com for only $5.38 hardcopy or $2.99 as an ebook.
We present the book this Saturday, Jan. 24 at 3 pm at East Los Angeles Public Library, in the Chicano Resource Center.
Please think of coming.
My third TYTT: ELA workshop at the library begins the Saturday following that – January 31.
Over the next year, with the generous support of the County Library, I hope to be expanding the workshops to other parts of L.A. County – Compton, South Central and elsewhere.
By the way, the first TYTT: ELA book, which we published last year, is also on sale, packed with very cool stories as well.
A new story up this week on my storytelling page, Tell Your True Tale, is by convicted bank robber Jeffrey Scott Hunter.
Check out Wasn’t About the Money — Jeff’s story of the time he knew his bank robbing was getting out of hand.
Happy to read any story you might want to submit.
And please share it on any social media you might use….
