Arellano will be in Tancredo country tonight for a free 7:30 p.m. book signing at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street. But although the country's most notorious opponent of illegal immigration is a Colorado congressman, Arellano the California-born son of a tomato canner and an illegal says his column gets a good response in Denver. And he's certain that his talk on what he's dubbed the Reconquista tour will do the same. "I'll read excerpts from the book, I'll have some remarks, and then I always open it up to questions and answers," he says. And just in case you don't get to ask your question, Arellano promises an all-Colorado column in the July 12 issue of Westword.
