ONE HUNDRED DAYS, ONE HUNDRED NIGHTS By Gloria McSorley PAY IN G R E NT By Alex Zerm e no Alex Zermeno’s memoirs describe a community activist seeking civil rights and empowerment for Latino communities during the mid 1950s to early 2000s. Alex began as a “bird dog” during a voter registration drive in his hometown of Salinas, California. His community activism includes serving on various non-profit boards, assisting in organizing the United Farm Workers, and the various challenges involved while directing the Anti-Poverty program in the Mission District of San Francisco. Serving as Deputy Director of NCLR, a national Latino advocacy organization in Washington D.C., reinforced the idea of communities united can make a difference. Alex warmly and humorously writes of these experiences and of the family’s several cross country moves in his efforts to bring about positive change for Latinos. Gloria Burola McSorley had everything to make her world complete; good health, a loving husband, a beautiful family, and secure surroundings. She needed nothing more...until one day her world fell apart. It came without warning, without preparation–CANCER. She was thrown into a world she knew nothing about. One Hundred Days, One Hundred Nights is her intimate journey through the first few months of that world. How she dealt as a caregiver for her husband and the wide range of emotions and struggles that surround this disease. It is a tale of love, dedication, strength, courage, and hope. The book describes how she coped with the ups and downs and all the in between. She was even able to find a bright side at the end of each day. THE MI SADV E NTURES OF N ICK B y F l oyd W.
