Big congratulations to Reyna Grande! This week, the Maryland Humanities Council announced that her memoir, The Distance Between Us, is the 2014 One Maryland One Book selection! The "One Maryland One Book is designed to bring together diverse people in communities across the state through the shared experience of reading the same book." Reyna will be doing several talks throughout the state in late September.
The Distance Between Us has also been chosen for the One Book/One Community program in Farmington, NM. "The purpose of 'One Book/One Community' is to encourage interested people in San Juan College and the surrounding communities to read the same book and come together to discuss it in a variety of settings." Reyna will be visiting the area in October.
This month, Reyna will be visiting Grand Valley State University as part of the Community Reading Project 2014 events related to The Distance Between Us, and Monroe County, which selected her memoir for its One Book/One Community of Monroe County, 2014.
