David E. Stuart's The Guaymas Chronicles: La Mandadera
David E. Stuart apparently wrote most of The Guaymas Chronicles—his funny, graceful memoir about some time he spent in Mexico—while loitering at the Flying Star Café on Central. Although I haven't seen a copy yet, a reliable source at Bookworks tells me this book, published by UNM Press, will ice almost anyone's cake. At the signing, Orange Crush will be served (because Stuart drinks it throughout the book) along with tasty treats concocted by Flying Star. I've also been told that Stuart is an excellent reader so this should be an enjoyable signing. He'll be at Bookworks on Monday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m. 344-8139.
