NEW MEXICO AUTHOR DEBUTS FIRST NOVEL 4:00 PM SATURDAY, JULY 22, AT PAGE ONE

New Mexico author Lorena Hughes, who lived in Ecuador until she was 18 years old, will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, July 22, to talk about and sign her first novel, "The Sisters of Alameda Street."

This debut effort is described as such: "A generational saga that mixes historical fiction with the romance and intrigue of a Latin soap opera. When Malena Sevilla's tidy, carefully planned world collapses following her father’s mysterious suicide, she finds a letter—signed with an “A”—which reveals that her mother is very much alive and living in San Isidro, a quaint town tucked in the Andes Mountains. Intent on meeting her, Malena arrives at Alameda Street and meets four sisters who couldn’t be more different from one another, but who share one thing in common: all of their names begin with an A. To avoid a scandal, Malena assumes another woman’s identity and enters their home to discover the truth. Could her mother be Amanda, the iconoclastic widow who opens the first tango nightclub in a conservative town?"

Hughes was born and raised in Ecuador until moving to the United States at eighteen. She has a degree in fine arts and mass communication & journalism from The University of New Mexico. Her first unpublished novel, "The Black Letter," took first place in the 2011 Southwest Writers International Writing Contest (historical fiction category), and an honorable mention at the 2012 Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition. She lives in New Mexico, and once worked at Page One Books.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Hughes event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
