Vernon Area Public Library joins libraries across Illinois to host an online event with actor, author and restaurateur Danny Trejo, on Tuesday, April 4, at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to all; advance signup is required. Sign up online or call 224-543-1485.
Trejo is a prolific actor, well known for his roles in feature films including Desperado, Heat, Con Air, Spy Kids and the From Dusk ‘til Dawn series, and on television series such as “Sons of Anarchy,” “King of the Hill,” “Breaking Bad” and “The Flash,” among others.
Trejo’s road to success in the entertainment industry was hard-earned and atypical. Once a “real-life bad guy,” drug use during his teens led to years in and out of prison in the 1960s on various charges including armed robbery. His memoir, Trejo: My Life of Crime, Redemption, and Hollywood, was released in July 2021.
Today, in addition to acting, the 78-year-old voices a variety of video games, oversees several restaurants and lines of packaged food products, has published a cookbook and craft cocktail book, and serves as an intervention counselor. He is also the proud father of three.
