Luis Alberto Urrea - The House of Broken Angels

Upcoming Event
Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Miguel Angel De La Cruz, the aging patriarch in Urrea’s family epic, has invited his sprawling Mexican-American clan to San Diego to help him celebrate one final birthday. When his mother, nearly one hundred, dies the same weekend, her death only sparks more memories and makes the occasion all the richer. Based on Urrea’s own family, the De La Cruzes are “imperfect and glorious, messy and hilarious,” and as Urrea, author of the classic The Devil’s Highway, brings their myriad perspectives to life, he gives us an immigration narrative that’s as intimate as it is panoramic.
