On Thurday, October 21st at 7:30pm PDT Warwick’s and Teatro Punto y Coma present María Amparo Escandón as she discusses her new book, L.A. WeatherMaría Amparo Escandón is the New York Times and #1 Los Angeles Times bestselling author of Esperanza’s Box of Saints and González & Daughter Trucking Co. Named a writer to watch by both Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times, she was born in Mexico City and has lived in Los Angeles for nearly four decades.


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, Maria 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.

This event will feature Teatro Punto y Coma actors Stephanie Frid, Aida Masliah, Beto Cohen, and Carlos Sayd, directed by Pepe Stepensky
