June 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Johnny Diaz presents his new book “Looking for Providence”
Two best friends, two big cities, two adventures of a lifetime. A story about the power of friendship and love.
Ronnie Reyes thought he had everything he wanted – a guy he adored and a job he loved. Then the economy tanked and the 25-year-old not only lost his movie critic boyfriend but a dream job as a newspaper features writer. Now single in his newly adopted city of Providence, Ronnie learns to start over as a Business reporter in Rhode Island’s capital city. And his life is about to take a dramatic turn during a reporting assignment when he meets Phil, a startingly handsome local business executive. Phil takes Ronnie under his wing and shows him around his native Providence and just maybe, the way to his heart. But is Ronnie ready to embrace a new love? He receives some long-distance guidance from his Miami wing man Elias who is reeling from the loss of his TV production job. Broke, unemployed and ready for a change, Elias reluctantly moves back home to his mother’s estate when he discovers a volunteer opportunity in Europe that he just can’t say no to. During the course of one unpredictable summer, Ronnie and Elias are there for each other as they search for their own providence.
