Reyna Grande's The Distance Between Us is a powerful and revelatory look at immigration. Summoning comparisons to writers Maya Angelou and Frank McCourt, the American Book Award-winning author offers an unflinching account of her family's move from Mexico to Los Angeles in the early 1980s. With the future of DACA in question and immigration policy making headlines daily, Grande visits Scripps for a reading and conversation on an issue that is both deeply personal and political. This program is sponsored by the Scripps College Dean of Faculty's Office and the Clark Lectureship, SCORE, and the Alexa Fullerton Hampton '42 Fund.
