In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, I am pleased to invite you to join AAUW’s ¡Adelante! Book of the Month Club for our upcoming discussion with Carol Spaulding-Kruse and Kelsey Lepperd, authors of The Ones I Bring with Me/Los Que Llevo Conmigo: Iowa’s Latinas on Education, Identity, and Success.This bilingual English and Spanish book explores the experiences of young Latinas who take part in Al Éxito, an educational program originally established by AAUW of Iowa with support from an AAUW Community Action Grant. The book tells the story of overcoming barriers that keep Latinas from completing school.The Ones I Bring with Me/Los Que Llevo Conmigo shows the character and determination of students and their young adult mentors who tell about their struggles with identity and experiences as people of color. The foreword is by Maria Hinojosa, award-winning journalist and the anchor and executive producer of Latino USA on NPR, a radio show devoted to Latino issues.
