I am so excited to announce the publication of Lake Street Stories!
It’s available now at Amazon.com and other online stores in both print and e-book, or ask your favorite bookseller to order it for you. More information.
All profits will be donated to CLUES (Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio), a linguistically and culturally relevant resource and service nonprofit organization whose programs and services connect individuals and families to resources, skills, institutions, and systems and create an environment for people to be engaged and empowered. CLUES 720 East Lake St. offices were heavily damaged in a recent fire.
If you don’t know Lake Street (as in, you don’t live in the Twin Cities), Lake Street cuts across Minneapolis from west to east, running from the urbane to the urban to the blue-collar. North and south, it is the dividing line between inner-city neighborhoods and tidy bedroom communities. Lake Street has been welcoming immigrants to Minneapolis for over a century, and it remains a rich gumbo of lifelong Minneapolitans and people from all corners of the world.
