About the Event
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Ana and her husband Lucho, along with their two young children, have fled the economic and political strife of Peru for a chance at a new life in New York City in the 1990s. Being undocumented, however, has significantly curtailed the family’s opportunities. While Lucho dreams of returning to Peru, Ana is deeply haunted by the demons she left behind and determined to persevere in this new country. But how many sacrifices is she willing to make? And what lines is she willing to cross in order to protect her family? The Affairs of the Falcóns is a beautiful, deeply urgent novel about the lengths one woman is willing to go to build a new life, and a vivid rendering of the American immigrant experience.
ABOUT THE EVENT SERIES:
Latinx in Publishing (latinxinpublishing.com) has partnered with Latinx owned bookstores across the US on an event series to celebrate Latinx Heritage Month! We have partnered with several Latinx authors who will visit participating stores to do a reading and sign copies of their books. We hope you'll come out and support Latinx business owners and creators.
