Reyna Grande & Valeria Luiselli

Monday, February 25, 7:30 p.m.

Reyna Grande’s memoir A Dream Called Home is an inspiring account of her quest to find her place in America as a first generation Latina university student and aspiring writer determined to build a new life for her family. At 9 years old, Grande walked across the US-Mexico border in search of her parents, who left her behind years ago in pursuit of a better life. By daring to pursue her dreams of an education and a writing career, Grande builds the one thing she has always longed for: a home that would endure.

 

Valeria Luiselli’s novel Lost Children Archive humanizes the pressing and polarizing issue of immigration. As a family travels across America on a summer road trip, there is news on the radio about an “immigration crisis”: thousands of kids trying to cross the border into the United States, but getting detained—or lost in the desert along the way. As they drive, we sense that the family is on the brink of a crisis of its own. This powerful novel takes us deep into the lives of one remarkable family as it probes the nature of justice and equality today.
