Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Part fiction, part autobiographical memoir, “Elvis Romero and the Cosmic White Corvette” tells the coming-of-age story of protagonist Elvis Romero growing up in Santa Fe, New Mexico between 1955 and the late 1970s. “Some people consider this a ‘Golden Age’ in Santa Fe,” said Lovato. “It’s a stream-of-consciousness type of book, in which the lead character reflects on his past and Santa Fe during these years.” Visitor guide SantaFe.com and Mr. Lovato are partnering to showcase the book by releasing a new chapter from the book on SantaFe.com on a weekly basis.
The book touches on a number of issues relating to Santa Fe Hispanic culture and larger American cultural shifts occurring during this time period and its influence on young people in the city. “Readers interested in Santa Fe and in the larger American culture during the period of the 1950s through the 1970s will enjoy this book,” added Lovato.
A Santa Fe native, Lovato’s prior works include “Elvis Romero and Fiesta de Santa Fe” and “Santa Fe Hispanic Culture: Preserving Identity in a Tourist Town,” as well contributions to “Our New Mexico: A Twentieth Century History,” “Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe,” “Nuevo Mexico: A New Mexico History Anthology” and “The Return to the River.” Lovato has also written numerous articles and given lectures for various groups and organizations on the topic of Santa Fe and New Mexico Hispanic culture.
A 2008 Fulbright Scholar, Lovato received his Ph.D. in Communication with an emphasis in intercultural communication from the University of New Mexico in 2000. He is an associate professor of Speech Communication at Santa Fe Community College.
