One Community One Book Discussion 2014: The Distance Between Us by Reyna Grande

Join us for a discussion of “The Distance Between Us” by Reyna Grande. Raised in Mexico in brutal poverty during the 1980s, four-year-old Grande and her two siblings lived with their cruel grandmother after both parents went to the U.S. in search of work. Grande deftly evokes the searing sense of heartache and confusion created by their parents' departure. Eight years later her father returned and reluctantly agreed to take his children back to the States with him. Yet life on the other side of the border was not what Grande imagined.
