Submitted by AWM on Tue, 11/20/2018 - 4:16pm
Louie Pérez, of Los Lobos, reads from and signs his new memoir, "Good Morning, Aztlán" at the American Writers Museum on December 9 at 3:30 pm.
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 - 3:30pm to Sunday, December 9, 2018 - 5:30pm
Grammy Award-winner Louie Pérez, of Los Lobos, presents and discusses his memoir GOOD MORNING, AZTLÁN.

Pérez appears as part of the AWM's Singers & Songwriters series in conjunction with our new exhibit Bob Dylan: Electric. Combining musical performance and literary discussion, the Singers & Songwriters series takes visitors to the intersection of music, poetry, lyricism, and beyond.

Louie Pérez is a master musician and innovative visual artist who has spent the last forty years as founding member and principal songwriter for the internationally acclaimed group Los Lobos. Working with his songwriting partner, David Hidalgo, Pérez has written more than four hundred songs.

Many of those songs, along with previously unpublished poems and short stories as well as paintings, sketches, and photos, are collected in this deeply personal, yet universally appealing volume. The book also features essays by musicians, artists and scholars who artfully dissect the significance of Pérez’ work. GOOD MORNING, AZTLÁN is, without question, a different kind of memoir.
