Highline Welcomes Award-Winning Author, Reyna Grande

  • Reyna Grande

Author to host student luncheon, writing workshop and Q&A/book signing

Reyna Grande is a renowned author whose work explores themes of immigration, family, and displacement. Her insightful storytelling and powerful narratives resonate deeply with audiences, making this event a must-attend for anyone interested in literature and social justice. Learn more about Reyna’s work.

These events are part of collective efforts to continue to advocate and support the transition of Highline College toward becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). It is our hope that this also opens the conversation around the gaps and additional support our Latinx student population needs from our institution.

As we begin our transition towards becoming an HSI, we encourage you to dive deeper into Reyna’s journey as she unpacks her experience as a community college student, take a moment to read one of her books, or watch this video from the San Diego Union-Tribune, as she allows us into parts of her life as an undocumented immigrant to successful author.
