Join us on Friday, September 27th at 7 PM for an evening with Stephanie Jimenez, debut author of They Could Have Named Her Anything, as part of Latinx in Publishing’s Latinx Heritage Month event series! Stephanie Jimenez (stephaniejimenezwriter.com) will do a reading from the novel, and we’ll be selling signed copies.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
They Could Have Named Her Anything is Stephanie Jimenez's debut novel—the story of two teenaged girls, one Latina and one white, questioning what it means to live up to the name you’ve been given and how far you’ll go for the life you’ve always dreamed of; grappling with racism, class privilege, female friendship, and familial expectations, set in Queens and the Upper East Side, Manhattan.
ABOUT THE EVENT SERIES:
Latinx in Publishing (latinxinpublishing.com) has partnered with Latinx owned bookstores across the US on an event series to celebrate Latinx Heritage Month! We have partnered with several Latinx authors who will visit participating stores to do a reading and sign copies of their books.
We hope you'll come out and support Latinx business owners and creators.
