HBO Rain of Gold Miniseries in the Works

Victor Villaseñor’s bestselling book Rain of Gold has been used by thousands of teachers and school systems throughout the United States as required reading. Rain Of Gold tells the story of his family, taking the reader from war-torn Mexico during the Revolution to the present day.

He posted this message asking for our support of the miniseries on his website:

Dear Friends,

Originally, HBO had projected to start shooting a ten-hour Rain of Gold miniseries this year. But due to various industry strikes and delays, it was pushed back. Now, once more we are in the process of getting the script written, so we can start shooting next year. We need your help to congratulate and thank HBO.

HBO is the best!

Please write a letter or an email to HBO telling them how much you appreciate the fact that they are making this series, based on the Rain of Gold trilogy, meaning Wild Steps of Heaven, Rain of Gold, Thirteen Senses.

Tell them how these books have touched your hearts and helped unite generations of your family in an exciting, magical, and yet realistic positive way.

Thank you, gracias, and a big abrazo,
Victor Villaseñor
