[UPDATED] Daniel Hernandez, Award-Winning Reporter, to Read From His New Book on Mexico City TOMORROW at Calacas!
Those of us in Southern California fondly remember Daniel Hernandez, the San Diego native who jolted local journalism in Southern California for a couple of years--first, as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, then for our sister paper LA Weekly. He left in 2007 to write a book about Mexico City, a book that is finally getting released next Tuesday. Down and Delirious In Mexico City: The Aztec Metropolis In the Twenty-First Century chronicles Hernandez's adventures in our favorite country's capital, and he's gracing us with a visit tomorrow in SanTana--apt, since the city has one of the largest expat chilango communities outside of Mexico.
Hernandez's reading will happen at Calacas, 324 W. Fourth St., Ste. B, Santa Ana, (714) 662-2002. Thurs., Feb.10, 7 p.m. I will introduce Hernandez--mainly because I owe my own books to him, but also because he's my Scribner hermano. He'll read from the book, take questions and sign copies. See you there!
