Would you like to lend/receive a helping hand? Give a present (perhaps to yourself) that gives back?
I have always wanted to get better at:
. hemming pants and making old clothing new (p. 120, “Altered States”)
. constructing home-made gifts
. managing my finances (p. “Girls Just Wanna Have Funds”)
. hosting parties (p. 240)
. doing my laundry
. taking a vacation (p. 312, “There She Goes”)
…until the “Bust DIY Guide to Life” appeared, I hadn’t seen a publication that compiled all of the above topics and menneh-menneh more into one handy-dandy volume. This is the must-have gift item for the college aged (21+beyond) DIYer/mover&shaker trying to make it as a grown up person with grown-up responsibilities & a good sense of play.
Luis Alberto Urrea discusses and signs Queen of America
01/26/2013 4:00 pm
695 E. Colorado Blvd
At turns heartbreaking, uplifting, fiercely romantic, and riotously funny, Queen of America tells the unforgettable story of a young woman coming of age and finding her place in a new world. Beginning where Luis Alberto Urrea's bestselling The Hummingbird's Daughter left off, Queen of America finds young Teresita Urrea, beloved healer and "Saint of Cabora," with her father in 1892 Arizona. But, besieged by pilgrims in desperate need of her healing powers, and pursued by assassins, she has no choice but to flee the borderlands and embark on an extraordinary journey into the heart of turn-of-the-century America.
