A Life on Hold: A Reading and Book Signing with Josie Méndez-Negrete
Resistencia Bookstore, Saturday, January 16, 2016 at 6pm
6 PM – 8 PM Saturday, 16 January 2016
Red Salmon Arts Presents
A Life on Hold: A Reading and Book Signing with Josie Méndez-Negrete
For more than twenty years Josie Méndez-Negrete has endured the emotional journey of watching her son Tito struggle with schizophrenia. Her powerful account is the first memoir by a Mexican American author to share the devastation and hope a family experiences in dealing with this mental illness. Méndez-Negrete depicts the evolution of the disease from her perspective as a parent and by relating Tito’s own narrative, illuminating the inadequacies of the US mental health system and the added burdens of addiction and blame. Through the author, Tito paints a vivid picture of his lived experiences and everyday traumas to show how his life and the lives of his loved ones have been impacted by mental illness.
Josie Méndez-Negrete is a sociologist who teaches Mexican American studies in the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She is also the author of Las hijas de Juan: Daughters Betrayed.
“Méndez-Negrete weaves powerful accounts of her visits to her son with factual information from professional literature. . . . A Life on Hold will make you appreciate what is right in your life and what is right in the human race.”— Story Circle Book Reviews

Michael ConnellyThe Black Box by Michael Connelly
Barnes & Noble Booksellers - Huntington Beach, Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 11am
Michael Connelly discusses and signs The Black Box
Vroman's Bookstore, Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 4pm
In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photojournalist during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch’s ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue.
Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the “black box,” the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together. Riveting and relentlessly paced, The black box leads Harry Bosch into one of his most fraught and perilous cases.
