At just 9 years old, Reyna Grande left her home in the city of Iguala, Mexico, to join her parents in the United States, where she entered as an undocumented immigrant. She went on to become the first person in her family to graduate from college. In her best-selling 2013 memoir The Distance Between Us, she recounts her young life on both sides of the southern border. In 2018, Grande published a sequel, A Dream Called Home. The American Book Award winner gives a public reading with fellow author Sally Keith as part of the Middlebury Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference.
