Mar. 23—Reyna Grande's work touches on immigration, family separation, language trauma, the price of the "American dream," and her writing journey.

Grande will be virtually attending Viva Latino: Own Voices Writers in Conversation for a discussion on Latin American identity in contemporary fiction at 7 p.m. April 1. The event features a distinguished Latinx author panel and is a collaborative effort between Frederick County Public Libraries, Prince George's County Memorial Library System and Charles County Public Library.

Reyna's work has appeared in The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, CNN, The Lily at The Washington Post and Buzzfeed, among others. In March 2020, she was a guest on Oprah's Book Club discussion of "American Dirt."
