Sergio Troncoso: Nepantla Familias (In Conversation with Lisa Page)

The Ivy is looking forward to hosting Sergio Troncoso for a conversation about his new anthology: Nepantla Familias: An Anthology of Mexican American Literature on Families in between Worlds. Please join us on Zoom to celebrate this new and notable collection, which explores the in-between moments in Mexican American life—the family dynamics of living between traditional and contemporary worlds, between Spanish and English, between cultures with traditional and shifting identities. View a video about it here.
