What would I do without my agenda?

Lately my schedule has been filled up by meetings with architects, contractors and interior designers. Last Monday I had 6 meetings – and by the end of the day, I couldn’t remember who was who. Design ideas were flowing – from color, to tiles, to fixtures, I was on design overload!    

More meetings are planned - with publishers, artists, plumbers, electricians, software companies and bakeries - yes, bakeries too! 

I am in search of the perfect pastries from a local, independent shop.

Know a local bakery I should try? 
Email me the bakery name/website: lucha.libros(at)

Thank you!

Three Kings Day

Last week, El Museo del Barrio celebrated the 35th annual Three Kings Day parade – thousands of school children walked down the streets of East Harlem, along with marching bands, floats, music groups and camels. 

The parade is a celebration of the 3 Kings Day tradition, and I have had the privilege of organizing the annual event for three years. 

Between parade planning and the holidays, I hadn't posted and update on the bookstore’s progress – but there is so much coming up for La Casa Azul Bookstore that updates will post more often.

For campaign supporters who gave at the PUBLISHER, AGENT and EDITOR level – your ‘Got Libros?’ shirt was mailed last week.
