In Solito: A Memoir, poet Javier Zamora offers an intimate account of his treacherous, near-impossible journey at age 9 from his small town in El Salvador through Guatemala and Mexico and across the U.S. border. Solito is Zamora’s story – but also the story of millions of others who had no choice but to leave home. In House of Sticks: A Memoir, Vietnamese-born author Ly Tran recalls her and her family’s journey from a small town along the Mekong River to Queens, New York. It’s a coming-of-age tale that plays out over a clash of cultural expectations. Moderating is author Maria Hinojosa, whose latest memoir is Once I Was You – Adapted for Young Readers: Finding My Voice and Passing the Mic.
