An Evening for Latinx Youth with Authors Lynda Lopez and Natalia Sylvester

August 13
Live Zoom Event
Thursday, August 13, 2020
7:30 PM EST/5:30 PM MST

The National Hispanic Cultural Center, in collaboration with Duende District and Greenlight Bookstore, present Lynda Lopez, editor of AOC: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Natalia Sylvester, author of Running, with special teen guests from the Latin American Youth Center and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

The evening event will highlight and celebrate Latinx youth civic engagement, featuring authors Lynda Lopez and Natalia Sylvester. Lopez’s book AOC: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, explores the multiple meanings, from seventeen contributing writers’ points of view, of a young Latina politician in the U.S. Congress. Just thirty, AOC represents her generation, the millennials, in many groundbreaking ways: proudly working class, of Puerto Rican descent, master of social media, a feminist—and a great dancer. In Sylvester’s Running, fifteen-year-old Cuban-American Mariana Ruiz starts to see her father with new eyes when he runs for president. This authentic and humorous YA debut is about waking up and speaking out as Mari fights to find her voice while the whole world is watching.
