Reading by Novelist and Memoirist Reyna Grande

Nelson Hall East
As part of the English Department's Visiting Writers Series, the novelist and memoirist Reyna Grande will give a reading on campus Thursday October 27 at 4pm in the Goodwin Forum.

Reyna Grande is the author of three critically acclaimed books. THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US, Grande’s memoir about her life before and after illegally immigrating from Mexico the United States, was published in 2012. A finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, it was hailed by the L.A. Times as ‘the Angela’s Ashes of the modern Mexican immigrant experience.’

Grande’s first novel, Across a Hundred Mountains (Atria 2006), received a 2007 American Book Award, and the 2006 El PremioAztlán Literary Award. Her second novel, Dancing with Butterflies (Washington Square Press 2009) was the recipient of a 2010 International Latino Book Awards. All three books have been read widely in schools across the country.

Born in Mexico, Reyna was two years old when her father left for the U.S. to find work. Her mother followed her father north two years later, leaving Reyna and her siblings behind in Mexico. In 1985, when Reyna was going on ten, she entered the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant to live with her father. She went on to become the first person in her family to graduate from college. Reyna holds a B.A. in creative writing and film & video from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She received her M.F.A. in creative writing from Antioch University.

Sustainable Futures: "Where in the Wild? The Search for Wilderness in the Anthropocene"

HSU Campus
As part of the Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, Jason Mark will present "Where in the Wild? The Search for Wilderness in the Anthropocene."

Jason Mark is the author of “Satellites in the High Country: Searching for the Wild in the Age of Man” and the editor in chief of SIERRA, the national magazine of the Sierra Club. His writings on the environment have also appeared in The New York Times, The Nation,, and, among many other publications. He is a co-founder of Alemany Farm, an urban farm in San Francisco.

In the 21st century, on the verge of what some are calling the Anthropocene, is there any place that’s still really, truly wild? And, if so, how can we hold onto wildness as a touchstone for our relationship with the rest of nature? In this lecture, Jason will share some thoughts from his 2015 book, “Satellites in the High Country,” and will explore the meaning of wilderness today.

The Sustainable Futures Speaker Series is presented by the Environment & Community Graduate Program and the Schatz Energy Research Center.

The presentation will take place Thursday, October 27, at 5:30 p.m. in ArtB 102 on the HSU campus.
