Hispanic & Latino Heritage in Virginia
Hispanic & Latino Heritage (The History Press, 2016) is a non-fiction history and culture book. This accessible title traces the vibrant history from the first Spanish ships to reach Virginia’s shores in the 16th century, to the rise of the Commonwealth’s Latin American population in the late 20th century.
It received coverage in the Richmond Times-Dispatch print edition and was also mentioned in Matador Network. An essay I wrote about the process of authoring the book appeared in The Huffington Post and Latin Trends Magazine.
I have presented talks on the book at museums and universities. This included serving as the 2021 Hispanic Heritage Month keynote speaker at Old Dominion University, as well as a guest lecturer at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture, and a featured author at the Fairfax Museum as part of George Mason University's Fall for the Book Festival.
