Illinois Libraries Present to host virtual visit with actor, author and restauranteur Danny Trejo
Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration between public libraries offering premier events, welcomes Danny Trejo in an online event on Tuesday, April 4.
Join actor, author and restaurateur Danny Trejo as he discusses how he developed a prolific career in the entertainment industry with a hard-earned and atypical road to success. From years of imprisonment to helping troubled youth battle drug addictions, from acting to producing, and now on to restaurant ventures, Trejo's name, face and achievements are well recognized in Hollywood and beyond. Still, it's his continuous role as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction.
Trejo has starred in dozens of films including "Desperado," "Heat," the "From Dusk Til Dawn" series, and "Machete."
On the television side, he's had recurring roles on "Sons of Anarchy" and "Breaking Bad," among others. Trejo has also lent his voice to video game and animated film characters.
He shared his love of food with the world in the release of his first cookbook "Trejo's Tacos: Recipes and Stories from LA." His fearlessly honest memoir "Trejo: My Life of Crime, Redemption, and Hollywood" was released in July 2021.
"Danny Trejo Talks Tacos, Hollywood and Redemption" will be online on Zoom at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4. Visit SchaumburgLibrary.org/events to register.
