GuerrillaReads No. 25

Luis J. Rodriguez is a poet, novelist, memoirist and – now – a guerrilla reader! Here he is reading from short story collection, The Republic of East L.A. It begins powerfully:

I wanted to be a writer even before I knew what writing was about. I wanted to carve out the words that swam in the bloodstream, to press a stunted pencil onto paper so lines break free like birds in flight…

Rodriguez is the author of fourteen books. He’s also co-founder of Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural and Bookstore, a terrific resource for things literary and Latino, in the heart of L.A.’s San Fernando Valley.
