What Made Children of the Land a Best-selling Memoir?

4 Mondays, November 2-November 23 at 4pm PT | 7pm ET

All webinars are recorded and it’s not too late to join us!

Marcelo Hernandez Castillo’s beautiful debut memoir, Children of the Land, touches on themes of not belonging, silence and invisibility, and the high price of hiding one’s truth. A rare memoir about being an undocumented immigrant since childhood, this memoir is unique in that it voices the unspoken challenges of countless people, and refreshing in its self-awareness and capacity to reflect upon situations that are particular to the immigrant experience and universal to the human experience. Children of the Land is a welcome addition to our popular “best-selling memoir series” as we explore what all memoirists can learn about the art and craft of memoir through the reading and study of this poignant new bestseller.

Each class is 60 minutes.

Interview with Jane Smiley

December 2, 7pm PT

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jane Smiley (A Thousand Acres), whose books have sold over a million copies in the U.S. alone, was bound and determined to release her latest novel in 2020. Why? She knew we all could use a pleasurable escape. And Perestroika in Paris is just that: a beguiling fairy tale for adults, praised by Publishers Weekly as “the perfect book for those for whom the real world, wracked with pandemic and politics, has become something to avoid.”

In this live conversation, I’ll speak with the incomparable Smiley as she welcomes us into another world: one in which the glitter of city lights pales in comparison to the bond all creatures share in their yearning to find kinship and be free.
