5:00pm [5:00pm] LECTURE BY REYNA GRANDE
Description:
LECTURE BY REYNA GRANDE Tuesday, September 18 ~ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM Arts Center, Callahan Theater Nazareth College https://maps.naz.edu/ Award-winning author of "The Distance Between Us," Reyna Grande, will share her story about life before and after illegally immigrating from Mexico to the United States. Born in Mexico and raised by her grandparents after her parents left to find work in the U.S., at nine years old, Reyna enters the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant to live with her father. Filled with hope, she quickly realizes that life in the U.S. is far from perfect. Her father isn’t the man she dreamed about all those years ago in Mexico. His big dreams for his children are what gets them across the border, but his alcoholism and rage undermine all his hard work and good intentions. Reyna finds solace from a violent home in books and writing, inspired by the Latina voices she reads. After an explosive altercation, Reyna breaks away, going on to become the first person in her family to obtain higher education, earning a college degree and then an M.F.A. in Creative Writing. At a time when immigration politics are at a boiling point in the U.S., Reyna Grande is an important public voice for Mexican Americans and immigrants of every origin. The Distance Between Us has the power to change minds and hearts. Free and Open to the Public No Ticket Necessary
