In the Shadows of the Freeway: Growing Up Brown and Queer with Lydia Otero Reading and Talk

The Esperanza is holding a reading and plática (talk) with Lydia R. Otero. Her latest book, In the Shadows of the Freeway: Growing Up Brown & Queer, is a coming-of-age memoir about growing up in a Southwest city invested in urban development. Otero reveals the day-to-day survival mechanisms they depended upon, the exhilaration of first love, the love of reading and the support she received from key family members as they tried to gain a sense of belonging in a world mired in dislocation.
