5th Annual Latino Book and Family Festival
Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos set out to report news, not make it, but his bestselling books keep him in the headlines anyway. Ramos (think a Mexican Anderson Cooper), who is hawking his latest release, El Regalo del Tiempo: Cartas a Mis Hijos (The Gift of Time: Letters to My Children), will be the major draw at the 5th Annual Houston Latino Book and Family Festival. Hes one of 40 authors appearing at the two-day event; others include Junot Diaz, whose debut novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao has been called an extraordinarily vibrant book by The New York Times, and Enrique Gratas, who will be signing copies of his latest title, El Arte de la Infidelidad (The Art of Being Unfaithful), which we sincerely hope is not a how-to book.
Mon., Sept. 3, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 29, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2007
