Dominic Carrillo Reading and Discussion
Join us as we host debut writer Dominic Carrillo reading from his debut novel To Be Frank Diego.
Frank Diego is forced to use public transportation for the first time (and his own two feet) in order to pick up his car on the other side of San Diego. From this altered perspective, he confronts his past, the ironies of his self-proclaimed ‘finest city,’ and meets an odd cast of characters along the way–ultimately derailing his simple plan. While Frank’s bi-cultural identity becomes better understood as the journey progresses, his relationship with his ‘girlfriend’ Kate grows more troubling. By the time he awkwardly meets her, he’s had an epiphany that is both transformative and inspiring.
“…a sincere, familiar voice with a sense of humor… a compelling, tragic-comic trek through San Diego.” -JustBookReviews.com
