Invite Reyna to your Book Club
Are you looking for the next
selection for your book club? Look no further. Across a Hundred
Mountains and Dancing with Butterflies have been very well
received by book clubs across the nation. If your book club is
in the Los Angeles area, you can invite Reyna to your meeting to
discuss her books. If you aren't local, please check Reyna's
upcoming events to see if she will be visiting your area! Reyna
is also happy to do book discussions through skype or phone.
"Reyna Grande's visit to our
teacher book club still resonates among the group. The group is
comprised of 12 educators - two-thirds women and one-third men.
We meet once a month to dialogue about our selected text and to
enjoy good food. Since several group members have danced in
folklorico groups "Dancing with Butterflies" resonated. Of
particular interest was the story behind the characters and her
writer's craft. Reyna entertained each of our queries and
brought insight into her writing process. We were delighted to
hear about her own personal experiences related to dance and the
way she created fictionalized characters based on her detailed
observations. We have read both of her novels, "Across a Hundred
Mountains" and "Dancing with Butterflies." With great
anticipation we await her next novel so we can continue to read
and learn from this Latina author."
