One Book Villanova Selects The Distance Between Us: A Memoir

The Distance Between Us: A Memoir tells the compelling story of a young girl's life before and after illegally immigrating from Mexico to the United States. Reyna Grande shares the story of her childhood that is sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking but all the time compelling. Beyond the politics of immigration debates, The Distance Between Us gives us insight into the story of a single family: the decisions made, the risks taken and the personal costs paid. One Book Villanova is our campus reading program. We'll welcome Reyna Grande to campus Sept. 10 for the St. Thomas of Villanova celebration. Books will be mailed to all first year students and a limited number of books will be available to students April 30 at the Oreo. Additional copies may be purchased from the Center for Multicultural Affairs or the Office of Student Development in June.
