MIAMI, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The official "christening" of the book La vida es una piñata ('Life is a piñata'), the most recent book by Ismael Cala, became a celebration featuring personalities from the media and the worlds of publishing and entertainment in the United States and Latin America.
"La vida es una piñata" appears this Thursday in the Top10 books in Spanish on Amazon and in first place in the motivational category.
The inspirational author, lecturer and communicator was surrounded by his best friends and colleagues at an exclusive party held in Miami, at the Flamingo Theater (The Four Ambassadors Hotel).
Among them were Bárbara Palacios (author, lecturer, former Miss Universe), Laura Posada (author and social activist) and Jorge Posada (former major league baseball player), Dr. Nancy Álvarez (psychologist and television anchorwoman), Karla Monroig (actress, model and TV hostess), Armando Correa (publisher of People en Español), Eduardo Suárez (Vice President of Production and Programming for CNN en Español), and Luz María Doria (writer and executive producer of Despierta América ('Wake Up America')).
Also present at the party were journalists, directors and hosts from Univisión, Telemundo, TV Azteca, SBS Radio, MegaTV and AméricaTevé, among others. Just a few hours later, Cala presented live La vida es una piñata, on his usual segment on Despierta América (Univisión), for millions of viewers in the United States.
La vida es una piñata confronts the reader with his earliest memories about his emotions, teachings and complexes, which evokes smashing a piñata.
Cala provides valuable tools for understanding how to seize the reins of destiny, aware that, although the future has not been written, much of the piñata that we must live through is created by our own determination, discipline and attitudes about life.
