Autograph Series: Luis Alberto Urrea

Gemini Ink welcomes author Luis Alberto Urrea for a free public reading, Q&A and book signing in conjunction with the Heather Catto Kohout Lecture series. Born in Tijuana and raised in San Diego, Urrea is a gifted storyteller who uses his bicultural life experiences to explore greater themes of love, loss and triumph. His books include The Hummingbird’s Daughter, Queen of America and Into the Beautiful North. His nonfiction book The Devil’s Highway tells the story of a group of Mexican immigrants lost in the Arizona desert. It won the Lannan Literary Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Free, 7pm Thu, Palo Alto College, 1400 W. Villaret Blvd., 734-9673, geminiink.org. — Ainsley Caffrey
