Reyna Grande Book Launch: A Dream Called Home
UC Santa Cruz alumna, Reyna Grande, will discuss her new memoir, A Dream Called Home, in conversation with Micah Perks.
A Dream Called Home is Reyna Grande's lyrical and moving follow-up to The Distance Between Us. The memoir tells the story of her pursuit to become the first in her family to earn a college degree and to find her place in her adoptive country.
She persevered and made the impossible possible--she went from being an undocumented immigrant to an award-winning and bestselling author. Her dreams of being the first in her family to graduate from college and to break the cycle of poverty that had trapped her family for generations took her along a difficult path, but led her to finding the one thing she had desperately longed for ever since her parents left her behind in Mexico--a home.
