The Seattle Public Library presents Richard Blanco's new memoir The Prince of Los Cocuyos: A Miami Childhood on November 10

The 2014 Seattle Reads author Richard Blanco will read from his new, full-length memoir about growing up in Miami as the Gay son of Cuban immigrants from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Monday, November 10, at the Broadway Performance Hall of Seattle Central College, 1625 Broadway, at Broadway and E. Pine St.

In Blanco's memoir, The Prince of Los Cocuyos: A Miami Childhood, he explores his coming-of-age in a Cuban immigrant family and his attempts to understand his place in America while grappling with his burgeoning artistic and sexual identities.

Blanco was born in Madrid in 1968 and immigrated as an infant with his Cuban-exile family to the United States. He was raised and educated in Miami, earning a B.S. in civil engineering and a M.F.A. in creative writing from Florida International University. Blanco is a practicing civil engineer, writer and poet, and teacher. His book For All of Us, One Today: An Inaugural Poet's Journey was the featured work for the Library's 2014 Seattle Reads series.

This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsor Gary Kunis, media sponsor The Seattle Times and presented in partnership with Seattle Central College and The Elliott Bay Book Company. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Parking is available in nearby commercial lots and on the street.

For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or visit www.spl.org.
