One of my favorite places in the city is La Casa Azul Bookstore. More than just a bookstore featuring Latino authors, La Casa Azul celebrates art, music and culture. La Casa Azul hosted an event to honor Frida Kahlo’s life and legacy. Frida is iconic and inspirational. I admire her strength, honesty and ability to paint her pain. It was wonderful to be among women who felt the same.
I can’t go into La Casa Azul bookstore without buying a book. It’s impossible. When I saw this one, I knew I had to have it!
