Juanes Begins Book Signing Tour For 'Chasing The Sun' Memoir

Juanes is coming to a book store near you.

With the release of his much anticipated memoir “Chasing the Sun” written also in Spanish “Persiguiendo el sol,” Juanes will meet and greet fans in five cities for a book signing tour.

“Chasing the Sun” is Juanes’ first book and in it he shares his story on his climb to the top and his fears, with striking full-color photos. The Colombian rock star’s book is being published by Celebra, a division of Penguin Group, and hits the shelves on Tuesday, April 2.

In “Chasing the Sun” Juanes writes, “This [book] is an expression of pure friendship and a sincere way of saying thanks to everyone who has supported my music over the years. It’s not my job to write books, Not in the least,…But I felt that if I really did this, it would be for you to learn who I truly am: who it is behind the songs you hear, Why I make the music I make, and why I think the way I think.”

Juanes’ Miami fans will be the first to get an up-close look at the superstar’s life and personal struggles. The 19-time Latin Grammy winner will have his first book signing in Miami at Books & Books on April 1 at 6 p.m.

The 40-year-old artist’s book signing tour will continue in New York City, Los Angeles, Houston and San Antonio. “Chasing the Sun” is $28.95.

Juanes’ latest album “MTV Unplugged” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart and in 18 countries throughout Latin America. His first single off the album, “La Señal,” was No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, making it Juanes’ eighth No. 1 song in his career. Juanes “MTV Unplugged” won him his 19th Latin Grammy– the most of any solo artist.

Juanes will appear on Univision’s “Aqui y Ahora” with Maria Elena Salinas on Sunday March 31 at 7:00 p.m. ET. He also makes his first appearance on “Live With Kelly and Michael” Wednesday, April 3 at 9 a.m. ET
