María Amparo Escandón, author of L.A. Weather - a virtual Boswell and Hispanic Professionals of Greater Milwaukee Event
The Hispanic Professionals of Greater Milwaukee and Boswell present an evening with María Amparo Escandón, author of L.A. Weather, which Publishers Weekly called " a rollicking and hilarious family drama of telenovela-esque proportions that doubles as a fiery love letter to Los Angeles."

For this event, María Amparo Escandón is in conversation with Tessa Bartels of the HPGM and Daniel Goldin of Boswell.

L.A. is parched, dry as a bone, and all Oscar, the weather-obsessed patriarch of the Alvarado family, desperately wants is a little rain. He's harboring a costly secret that distracts him from everything else. His wife, Keila, desperate for a life with a little more intimacy and a little less Weather Channel, feels she has no choice but to end their marriage. Their three daughters - Claudia, a television chef with a hard-hearted attitude; Olivia, a successful architect who suffers from gentrification guilt; and Patricia, a social media wizard who has an uncanny knack for connecting with audiences but not with her lovers - are blindsided and left questioning everything they know. Each will have to take a critical look at her own relationships and make some tough decisions along the way.

With quick-wit and humor, María Amparo Escandón follows the Alvarado family as they wrestle with impending evacuations, secrets, deception, and betrayal, and their toughest decision yet: whether to stick together or burn it all down.

María Amparo Escandón is the author of #1 L.A. Times bestseller Esperanza's Box of Saints and González & Daughter Trucking Co. Named a writer to watch by both Newsweek and the L.A. Times, she was born in Mexico City and has lived in Los Angeles for nearly four decades.
