Sher Davidson’s Under the Salvadoran Sun, is a love story involving former lovers in a tension packed journey to El Norte to help a Salvadoran family re-unite. Along the way the two must confront dangers including Salvadoran gang members and Guatamalan bandidos. As Cecile Pineda, author of Face, and Neustadt Prize finalist says: “No one writes love at first sight quite like Sher Davidson. What an enticing way to remind us that the politics of our globalized world is as much a part of our lives as good sex!”
Long time activist Sher will donate a percentage from book sales to an NGO, EcoViva, http://www.eco-viva.org/ which assists 86 rural villages to develop economic and environmental sustainability.
Award-winning author, filmmaker, Jan Baross, will launch her latest non-fiction book, Ms. Baross Goes to Mexico, San Miguel de Allende, MPolo Press. The small book is considered the best graphic travel guide of San Miguel, 2014, with its 94 exquisite drawings compiled from 30 years of sketching the people and places of San Miguel. San Miguel writer, Mark Saunders says, “San Miguel has its own delightful talisman in this gem of a book by Jan Baross. If you want to know more about the people and the essence of San Miguel, I can think of no better introduction than these lively, insightful, well-crafted sketches and her accompanying, often humorous, commentary. Jan’s instincts are impeccable.”
Authors Jan Baross and Sher Davidson look forward to your joining them. Autographed copies of the books will be for sale.
