I had a great time in Texas, hitting the road with Anel Flores, visiting with old friends and meeting new ones. I have a special place in my heart for San Antonio, where I've attended the Macondo Writers Workshop for many years. San Antonio has a lot of talented artists and writers and supports their work with enthusiasm. Here I am with my good friend and esteemed colleague Norma Alarcon.
You can read the interview I did with Out in San Antoniohere.
Thank you to everyone who made the trip so much fun, including the San Antonio Public Library, San Antonio Pride Center, and Trinity University.
I also took a quick jaunt to read at the UT Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. Big hug and thanks to Emmy Perez and her colleagues.
