Meet Mexican American author Yasmin Ramirez in a free, virtual author program on Feb. 9 at 7 p.m.
Her memoir, ¡Ándale Prieta!, delicately shares the experience of a young Latina growing up on the U.S-Mexico Border and subsequent years searching for herself and fulfillment after the passing of her grandmother.
Ramirez is an Assistant Professor of English, Creative Writing and Chicanx Literature at El Paso Community College. She will talk about her book, her writing process, and about the playlist she made to accompany the book.
The event will be held through the Zoom digital meeting platform. During the event, attendees will hear from the author and then have an opportunity to submit questions for the author to answer live.
NCW Virtual Reads hosts author events that spark conversations, curiosity and learning. All events are free and open the public.
