Reyna Grande to Speak at Titan Dreamers Resource Center

Nov. 21, 2014

Award-winning novelist, memoirist and inspirational speaker Reyna Grande will read from her memoir, "The Distance Between Us," at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 3, at the Titan Dreamers Resource Center, in Room 203 of the Pollak Library.

Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "the 'Angela's Ashes' of the modern Mexican immigrant experience," "The Distance Between Us" chronicles Grande's entry into the U.S. as a young undocumented immigrant to live with her father. The book was a National Book Critics Circle Awards finalist.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies, the Chicana and Chicano Resource Center and the Titan Dreamers Resource Center. More information is available via email or by calling 657-278-3234.
