When are you coming back to Fresno?
Hey Daniel, I’ll be back there end of March, from the 24th-27th. How’ve you been? Always good to hear from you!
I am so disappointed! I missed your workshop on writing, the concert and so much more here in Fresno. Your work on the plane wreck is fantastic. I am a French native living now in California and stories about immigration fascinate me. I heard about the Deportees for the first time on NPR a few weeks ago.
The good news is: your book party for Manana is in October. No excuse to miss it!
Thank you for sharing your work.
I was introduced to your work and your website through Rick Dale’s Daily Beat and your virtual web tour. Let me know if you make it back to Chicago.
Thanks, will do!
Hi Mr. Hernandez,
I think it would be a great idea for you to do a workshop here in the Le Grand Library. You may contact me for more information. 209-389-4541.
Gabriela, I would love to do a workshop there. Can you email more info or what you have in mind? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
