Louis Alberto Urrea Author Talk and Signing

Louis Alberto Urrea Author Talk and Signing

Watermark Books & Cafe will host Luis Alberto Urrea for an author talk and signing for 'The House of Broken Angels' on Thursday, March 22 at 6:00 p.m. In his final days, beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel De La Cruz, known affectionately as Big Angel, has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. But as the party approaches, his mother, nearly one hundred, dies herself, leading to a farewell doubleheader. Across one bittersweet weekend in their San Diego neighborhood, the revelers mingle among the palm trees and cacti, celebrating the lives of Big Angel and his mother, and recounting the many tales that have passed into family lore, the acts both ordinary and heroic that brought them to a fraught and sublime country and allowed them to flourish in the land they have come to call home.
