  1. 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.
