Bundle up and catch a replay of our November 12th virtual event with journalist and Vice contributor, Paola Ramos.
In Finding Latinx, Paola Ramos travels to near and far corners of the country in search of Latin-X voices that illustrate a growing movement and represent a community of young Latinos that hold more political, social, and cultural relevance today than ever before
Ramos joined us late last year for a conversation with UT-Austin’s Dr. Victoria De Francesco Soto, touching on the book’s major themes and the revelations made during the writing process. And hot on the heels of last year’s contentious election cycle, the conversation helps make sense of the demographic shifts in voting, too. You can watch the illuminating conversation on our Facebook page now.
And be sure to order your copy of Finding Latinx from BookPeople online today!
