As I rushed to the library to see Gustavo’s book signing, I just realized I did not bring cash. Completely bummed out. I was running late as it is, so I did not want to miss it. I arrived to see a normal library, people walking in and out, kids checking out books. But Once I walked into the event room and saw people of all ages chit chatting and laughing I realized this is where I wanted to be. Gustavo was introduced and he began to speak about his experience with the book and started to read excerpts from it. He spoke of doritos from an Anaheim company and the revolution of the taco. It was brilliant. It really hit home when he spoke of soCal and our connection to mexican food. I began to ask questions. I asked a writer, a parent and a food lover.
