Isabel Quintero will be reading from her novel, Gabi, A Girl in Pieces at the Wine Cellars/Taylor Hall this November 12th at 5:00. "Meet Quintero’s 'fat girl' Gabi, eating and starving and fighting and writing her way through the crushing pressures of high school boy desire, religious approval and Mexican cultural taboos. I cannot think of any book today for young adults as voracious, bold, truthful and timely." —Juan Felipe Herrera, Poet Laureate of California
