Friday, December 2, 2022, 6 pm:

Join us every month for the Guadalupe Latino Bookstore Author series at the Guadalupe Latino Bookstore at 1301 Guadalupe Street in San Antonio. 

Friday, December 2, 2022, 6 pm: Visual Artist and Writer Xavier Garza visits our Latino Bookstore for the Texas Author Series to share his book: “Vincent Ventura And The Curse of The Weeping Woman.” Admission is free. Xavier’s visual art will also be on exhibit at the Progreso Building Art Gallery. 

Join us for an end-of-the-year party just before the reading, 5 pm – 6 pm, with pan dulce, hot chocolate, coffee, and wine. And you can take our end-of-the-year survey to enter our 2022 raffle. We will have a drawing for a copy of each featured author from this year, and you will help shape next year’s lineup. Winner must be present. 

The evening is hosted by Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante, Literary Curator of our Latino Bookstore. He helped Xavier get his first book published. Now, the duo is united once again to take Our Voices to the next level.

Visit during the day and bring home some of our art, history, or culture.

The Guadalupe Cultural Art Center’s Latino Bookstore and Gift Shop is the epicenter of the West Side Art District in San Antonio and an official Visitor Center for the state of Texas.

It is also a foundation for our community’s heart, soul, and voice.

Our selection of books ranges from best sellers and icons to self-published authors from our community. We also have books for children, young adults, and teens in English, Spanish, and Spanglish.

We are not a typical commercial enterprise. The GCAC Latino bookstore is housed on the Guadalupe Cultural Art Center’s complex, across the street from a historic theatre, and inside the legacy Progresso Building. We have an outdoor stage next door and an outdoor plaza across the street from there.

More importantly, even our stories tell stories. Our shelves house a curated selection of writers and books whose art, history, and culture are linked to the 40 year legacy of the GCAC or one of the fields or artists under its umbrella. This ranges from theatre to visual arts, to dance, music, to film. All of which have just as rich a legacy as our literary roots.

Although we focus on Texas Latino writers, Mexican American Studies, Chicano Scholars, and Icons, we go out of our way to showcase the many facets of our Community’s voice. So you will also find representation from the entire Latino family tree, California, New Mexico, New York.
