Reyna Grande, “A Ballad of Love and Glory”

April 7, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  |  Cowell Ranch Hay Barn


UC Santa Cruz alumna Reyna Grande will be in conversation with Micah Perks and Sylvanna Falcón about her highly-anticipated new novel, A Ballad of Love and Glory, at an in-person event at the Cowell Ranch Hay Barn.

Reyna Grande is an award-winning author, motivational speaker, and writing teacher. As a young girl, she crossed the US-Mexico border to join her family in Los Angeles, a harrowing journey chronicled in The Distance Between Us, a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. Her other books include the novels A Ballad of Love and Glory, Across a Hundred Mountains, and Dancing with Butterflies, the memoirs The Distance Between Us: Young Readers Edition, and A Dream Called Home, and the anthology Somewhere We Are Human: Authentic Voices on Migration, Survival, and New Beginnings. She lives in Woodland, California, with her husband and two children. Visit for more information.
