PASO ROBLES, CA – September 18, 2023 Join the discussion of Luis Alberto Urrea’s The House of Broken Angels on Wednesday, October 18, 6:00-7:00 pm in the Library Conference Room.
In his final days, beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel de La Cruz, affectionately called Big Angel, has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. Among the guests is Big Angel's half-brother, known as Little Angel, who must reckon with the truth that although he shares a father with his siblings, he has not, as a half gringo, shared a life. Across two bittersweet days in their San Diego neighborhood, the revelers recount the many inspiring tales that have passed into family lore and the acts both ordinary and heroic that have brought these citizens to a fraught and sublime country and have allowed them to flourish in the land they have come to call home.
