Thursday, October 27, 7pm
WBPL Community Room

WBPL is excited to host a program with author and Iowa native Chuy Renteria! Chuy will talk about his book, We Heard It When We Were Young: Tales of Growing Up Mexican American in Small Town Iowa, which tells his experiences and stories celebrating the spaces between cultures, of mangled Spanglish and generational clashes, and of the messiness of people finding themselves.

In addition to being an author, Chuy is also a dancer, artist, storyteller, and teacher who currently works for the University of Iowa.

If you’d like to have Chuy sign his book, you can purchase a copy beforehand from Prairie Lights, Amazon, and other local booksellers.
