Thumbnail image for tacousa.jpg

Gentle readers: it gives me great pleasure to announce the first leg of my book tour for Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America. I'm burning the midnight coal with both ends of the candle's oil (or however that pinche metaphor goes) putting even more street corners on the agenda, but below is what I have so far. Go to them, bring a cousin or 50, and buy a book or a million! And, whenever possible, there'll be food!

All the events are FREE (unless noted); all the books, BARATO.
Now, without further ado:

I know you don't choose which places will offer to host you but here's a vote for Sonoma County.  Copperfields is a wonderful local (but good-sized) bookstore with a couple of branches that often has authors in for talks and signings.


Would you sign a book for Mitch?

Thank you for posting this, Gustavo.  I had heard you were coming up here, but couldn't find the info.  Looking forward to meeting your witty brain.
