Community Book Club Event

Free event with coffee and snacks for adults and children

Location: North Oak Cliff Public Library, 302 West Tenth Street

North Oak Cliff Public Library in partnership with Arts & Letters Live, Dallas Museum of Art

Join us for an insightful discussion of Reyna Grande’s book A Dream Called Home, moderated by Liz Cedillo-Pereira, Director of the Office of Welcoming Communities and Immigrants, and Dallas author Fabiana Elisa Martínez.

Reyna Grande’s memoir A Dream Called Home is an inspiring account of her quest to find her place in America as a first generation Latina university student and aspiring writer determined to build a new life for her family.

At 9 years old, Grande walked across the US-Mexico border in search of her parents, who left her behind years ago in pursuit of a better life. By daring to pursue her dreams of an education and a writing career, Grande builds the one thing she has always longed for: a home that would endure.

All adult participants will receive a copy of the book and free tickets to the Arts & Letters Live event on Monday, February 25, featuring authors Reyna Grande and Valeria Luiselli.

The book club conversation will be offered in both English and Spanish. Art activities for children and a bilingual story hour featuring Dreamers will take place during the book club discussion so that parents can enjoy the book club while their children are engaged. Families will receive one copy of Dreamers to take home in English or Spanish.

Reserve your free tickets online at DMA.org/all or call 214-922-1818.
