Reyna Grande, author of two award-winning novels—Across a Hundred Mountains which received an American Book Award, and Dancing with Butterflies which won an International Latino Book Award—will read from and sign her extraordinary new book The Distance Between Us: A Memoir (Atria), that captures her tumultuous early years spent torn between two parents and two countries, along with all the confusion and contradictions of childhood.

Reyna Grande discusses and signs The Distance Between Us: A Memoir
When Reyna Grande's father leaves his wife and three children behind in a village in Mexico to make the dangerous trek across the border to the United States, he promises he will soon return with enough money to build them a dream house. His promises become harder to believe as months turn into years. In this memoir, Reyna vividly brings to life her tumultuous early years, capturing all the confusion and contradictions of childhood, especially one spent torn between two parents and two countries. Upon her own journey to “El Otro Lado” (The Other Side) Reyna is elated to feel the glow of her long-absent father's love and approval, but she knows that at any moment he might turn angry or violent. Only in books and music and her rich imaginary life does she find solace, a momentary refuge from a world in which every place feels like “El Otro Lado.”
This discussion is free and open to the public. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of The distance between us from Vroman's, and one additional copy for every 3 books they bring from home. Save your Vroman's receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

Our first speed dating event with authors in July was a smashing success and we look forward to more fun on this Sunday afternoon in August. This time we feature authors writing about international locales and people.
Anita Amirrezvani is already well known for her debut, The Blood of Flowers which was on the long list for the Orange Prize. Based loosely on the life of Princess Pari Khan Khanoom, her new novel, Equal of the sun brings the royal court to life.
We recently met Reyna Grande at an author lunch where she wowed the audience with her charm and her prose. Her new book, The distance between us, is a memoir about her life before and after illegally emigrating from Mexico to the United States.
Taking readers from 1920 Shanghai to The Black Isle, a bustling British colony near the equator, Sandi Tan’s debut The Black Isle will educate and entrance you. It combines historical, supernatural, and erotic elements to create a truly great summer read.
Carol Quinn has written a memoir about two rambunctious dogs and a tough Eastern European dog trainer named Irina. It may be a bit of a stretch, but we thought it would be fun to include Follow My Lead and Carol in our afternoon of delightful authors and fabulous reads.
Our friends at Catalina Coffee & Café will have treats in store for all who attend. We will have free books to give out with every purchase. If you loved our July event, don’t miss this one .. and be sure to share it with a friend!
