WOW! (David Perez) (Mar 2011)
Book Launch:

The Nuyorican Poets Café
236 East 3rd Street between Ave B & C
Reverend Pedro Pietri Way
New York City

Dear friends,

My memoir, Wow! (11B Press) has arrived. Priced at $10, the 128-page "memoirito" is an accessible and fun read. Click here to order.

Better yet, come to my Book Launch at the historic Nuyorican Poets Café, where you'll enjoy an evening of friendship, good music and laughter as I read about growing up in the Millbrook Houses in the 1960's, navigating my way through a tough neighborhood and an even tougher Catholic school. Afterwards, I'll be happy to sign books and do that thing called mingling.

If you don't live in New York, please pass this on to anyone you know who does!

Wow! will also be available the next day, March 24, at the East Harlem Café on 104th Street and Lexington Ave. The event, "An Evening with Maria Aponte & Friends," features a poetry performance by Maria Aponte with musical accompaniment by Chacho Ramirez and Dwight Brewster. Special guests are myself and poet Veronica Golos (Vocabulary of Silence, Red Hen Press). The festivities begin at 7 pm. Admission is $5.

Please visit my website for information about other planned readings, as well excerpts and audio clips. Please click here.
“Pérez’s amazing memoirito brings a refreshing humanity to the Latino experience. Yet his coming-of-age story is universal in scope: lovely, funny, rich and evocative."
