Meet author Roberto A. Rocha at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library.  Rocha will be promoting his most recently published book Tamarindo Dreams: A Collection of Barrio Poetry. In this collection of verse, Rocha shares snippets of his life and experiences in the border region known as “el Valle.” Love, loss, grief, anger, humor, and faith are just some of the themes he offers, as well as glimpses into experiences with family and friendships.

The book presentation and signing are scheduled to take place at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

Roberto A. (Rob) Rocha is a native of the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, where most of the inspiration for his writing comes from. In 2006, he moved to Dallas, TX to oversee Latino operations for one of the largest and most influential ministries in the nation, traveling and speaking across Latin America, including Mexico, Venezuela, Columbia, and Argentina.

In 2008, Rocha was featured in the Dallas Morning Star’s Spanish publication “Al Dia,” as one of the Top 20 Emerging Hispanic Leaders in Dallas. Also an accomplished musician, he left the ministry in 2013 to record a CD of original music and to focus on other artistic pursuits. He currently lives in the Dallas area with his wife, Pauline.

The author will be selling copies of his book Tamarindo Dreams for $12 each. For more information on this event, contact Raul Martinez at 956-383-6246.  The library is located at 1906 South Closner Boulevard in front of the historic Echo Hotel.
