I am so out of practice after a summer of not being on the active book promotion circuit that I didn’t think to post my upcoming event at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte until a friend who works there sent me this write-up from campus news today. So, if you live in Charlotte, come join me for a rich discussion of the Latina experience and what I learned while writing Hijas Americanas on Monday, September 22. If you already have a copy of Hijas, bring it and I will happily sign. If not, you can pick up a copy there and I’ll happily sign. Or don’t bother with a book. I’ll still be happy to meet you!
