After eleven years living, dancing, teaching tango, and writing in Buenos Aires, I came home to L.A. in 2014, where I'm reconstructing my life.

Today begins the 3 week run at the huge fairgrounds in Buenos Aires, La Rural. Don't miss it if you are here and love books. And if possible, please attend my reading of The Church of Tango at the U.S. Embassy booth on Monday, April 30 (a holiday), at 6 p.m. If you go at 5:00 you can hear Ian Mount speak on the wines of Argentina, watch my presentation, and then stay to hear Donigan Merritt read from his novel, Blossom. Another American writer, Stephen Page, will be reading his poetry on Friday, April 27, at 5:00 p.m.

Read about it in Spanish on the official website.

And in English here.      

Here's a complete list and biographies in Spanish of the speakers at the U.S. Embassy booth during the Feria.

Which parts will you read? Will you also be taking questions? Will you mention the prequel on deck? Wish I could be there.

Hi Nancy, thanks for your comment. I wish you could be there too for moral support. And to ask some interesting questions.

I'm going to read from Chapter 1, the arrival in Paris, then in the middle, my first visit to Buenos Aires, and then on leaving Mexico to come here.

It was a bit tough to choose sections interesting and indicative of the book as a whole yet not too "intimate."

I hope I've selected the right ones.
