Daniel Serrano dropped me a note to say he will be reading from his novel, GUNMETAL BLACK this Thursday Nov. 20th after work at 7:00 PM, at Camaradas El Barrio. It’s at First Ave and 115th Street in Spanish Harlem, a short walk from the 6 train. You’ll love it.
They have great beer, sangria and yummy food. After his reading stick around and get blown away by some Boricua Roots Music by Yerbabuena as they get their bomba/plena swerve on.
What people are saying about GUNMETAL BLACK:
“Absolutely sensational!” -Teri Woods, New York Times bestselling author of True to the Game
“Debut novelist Serrano adds a Latino flavor to the genre with this intricate, Spanish-slang-laced story about a Puerto Rican parolee’s journey from jail cell to Chicago’s rough streets as he encounters betrayal, police corruption, casual sex, and stunning violence. The tense plot will grip readers, who will clamor for Serrano’s next work.” -Library Journal
