Please join me at the home of my dharma/yoga/salsa friend Patty in celebrating the publication of my memoir The Cost of Our Lives. I will share stories about my journey as the daughter of a Mexican father and Colombian mother. In addition to a brief reading/performance (starting at 3 pm) there will be time for questions and mingling. Books available for sale at the fiesta, and I will gladly sign books. Light snacks and wine/beverages. Feel free to bring a friend.
