Jose and I had the pleasure of attending the first book signing of Karen’s new book "The Flavor of Our Faith" at the American Bible Society Book Store this past monday. The event was accented with Puerto Rican "cantos y musica navideña" (Christmas songs and music) as Karen read portions of her book.
Karen is a vibrant and gifted up and coming author in our community. Down to earth and approachable, her book represents some of the best things "nuestra gente" (our people) have to offer, warmth, a rich sense of identity and a deep faith.
Latino Leadership Circle will be hosting a special event with Karen Valentin at the end of January. Look out for the announcement in the next few days. Meanwhile the book is available at Amazon (click the link on the left). It will make a great stocking stuffer. I invite you to gift people this Christmas with "The Flavor of our faith." Your friends and family will love you for it.
