In her latest book, The Distance Between Us, Reyna Grande writes about her life before and after illegally immigrating to the United States from Mexico. A National Book Circle Critics Award finalist, The Distance Between Us is an extraordinary story about the pursuit of a better life. The Los Angeles Times hailed it as “the Angela’s Ashes of the modern Mexican immigrant experience.”

Grande is a recipient of the American Book Award, El Premio Aztlán Literary Award and Latino Book Award.

You are invited to an author’s reception, where Grande will share her journey as an immigrant in pursuit of the American dream. Light refreshments will be served. Presentation and Q&A will be followed by book signing. Copies of The Distance Between Us will be available for purchase. Click to RSVP.
