Luis Alberto Urrea signs and discusses “The House of Broken Angels”

Left Bank Books welcomes Pulitzer Prize finalist Luis Alberto Urrea, who will sign and discuss his new novel, "The House of Broken Angels"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The House of Broken Angels" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

In his final days, beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel De La Cruz, known affectionately as Big Angel, has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. But as the party approaches, his mother, nearly one hundred, dies herself, leading to a farewell doubleheader. Across one bittersweet weekend in their San Diego neighborhood, the revelers celebrate the lives of Big Angel and his mother, recounting the acts that brought them to a fraught and sublime country and allowed them to flourish in the land they have come to call home. Teeming with brilliance and humor, authentic at every turn, "The House of Broken Angels" is Luis Alberto Urrea at his best, and it cements his reputation as a storyteller of the first rank.
