    I missed it this year I was a day late and a dollar short, but I will be looking forward to attending next year with my daughter who lives in Oceanside. Thank You Victo for such marvelous Gifts you’ve given us. I first read Víctor Villaseñor’s book Rain of Gold in English for my Reading 110 class at Palomar College I could not put it down, me the one who hated to read as a little girl, a teenager, and a young lady, now a middle aged woman with a book in her hand 24*7 until I finish it. I wrote my book reports on Rain of Gold and Walking Stars and I received an “A” in the Class thanks Victor Villaseñors fabulous books. This semester I reread Lluvia de Oro for my Spanish IV class, I enjoyed the book even more en español and all I have to do now is write my essay for my final and I will be finished for this semester, but not with reading I have really enjoyed his books and was hopping to find out if Victor has any type of appearances in the North County area I would Love to maybe get a signed copy of Rain of Gold the book that I believe that anyone with a drop of immigrant blood should read and the one who made me fall in Love with reading.

    Best Regards,
    Audry Gonzalez-Juarez

    • lindavillasenor

      Hi Audry – yes, please mark your calendar for next year’s SG event! It’s always the Sunday before Thanksgiving. So happy you’re loving Lluvia. Victor doesn’t have any local events coming up; you can send him your book to autograph. Mail it to 1302 Stewart St., Oceanside, CA 92054 and include a note and an addressed, stamped return box/envelope.

  • Charisma Johnson

    My English 09 class curriculum was designed from the ‘Rain of Gold’ book. So I was forced to read this book that I knew nothing about. To my surprise I have fell in love with the book. With the semester coming to a end very soon, I have almost finish reading the book. My English instructor told my whole class about this event, and if we attend we can receive class credit. We will be traveling in groups from Imperial Valley. I’m so excited, because meeting Mr. Villasenor will make the book feel that more real…See you soon. ..

    • lindavillasenor

      Great! Look forward to seeing you! Find me, Gary Gernandt, and I’ll put you to work, introduce you to Victor, and sign your attendance sheet.

    I’ve been on a spiritual course in miracle for the last few months, and although I have read the majority of Victor Villasenor’s book – I was recently moved to read Lion Eyes. I am working on Beyond Rain of Gold. We have attended Snow Goose about 5 years ago, but will be there his year. Thanks Victor for making love, miracles, and humanity such a focal point in all your books. I am a better person for reading your words.

    • lindavillasenor

      It’ll be wonderful to see you!
