J. Jesús Carranza Diaz, a lawyer and writer from Compostela, presented his book “Playa Los Ayala: Memorias de mi Pueblo” at the third book fair “Gran Nayar” at the Universidad Autónoma de Nayarit. Jesus was invited by City Hall to participate in this fair. He accepted with great pleasure and was proud to present the municipality with his most recent book, which César Ricardo Luque Santana discussed with attendees in two parts; one devoted to the author, and the other to the work itself. With respect to the author, he offered a brief profile for those who did not know of him yet. He explained that Jesús Carranza is a young lawyer and professor of the Instituto de Estudios Rey Nayar in Tepic. He is also a budding writer that has three published works. He has also completed a series of investigations and will likely release them in a new book soon.
Jesus Carranza has shown his commitment to culture, and is someone who is quickly gaining a name based on his perseverance and capabilities. His personal achievements as a professor and writer are due to hard work and his positive, responsible and efficient attitude. His studies and work have taken him from his youth in Los Ayala where he started working as a waiter at a place where he met a man of culture, Attorney Victor Pineda, who had a keen eye and suggested that he move to Tepic to pursue a higher education. Jesus tells in his book that Los Ayala is a place that obviously has prospered, but nevertheless retains the history of the people and their stories and legends. The images in the book allow his readers to rediscover a beautiful place which is certainly an interesting alternative for both of locals from Tepic and visitors from other states.
We, at Jaltemba Bay Life, would like to congratulate Jesus on his accomplishments and to thank him for sharing his stories about the rich Mexican cultures and traditions in his new column entitled “Viva Nayarit” on Jaltemba Bay Life.
