UPDATE: Tomorrow, I have my first book signing for the book at the Fullerton Library's main branch on Commonwealth. 7 p.m.--see you there!

ORIGINAL POST, APRIL 2: 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:
