Iowa City Book Festival: Chuy Renteria

Back to Previous

Chuy Renteria, who will discuss his debut book, We Heard It When We Were Young. In this book from University of Iowa Press, Renteria tells the story of a young boy, first-generation Mexican American, who is torn between cultures: between immigrant parents trying to acclimate to midwestern life and a town that was, by turns, supportive and disturbingly antagonistic. This event will be available in person at the Iowa City Public Library or virtually through Zoom. Visit for the Zoom link.
