The Voice Of A Latina Im

Do You Hear My Accent

Journal of the LRC



The Voice of a Latina Inmigrant

The latest book from Dr. Emma Sepulveda is a collection of the columns she has been writing for the Reno Gazette Journal during the past 10 years on Latino issues. As quite often she receives letters and e-mails in response to her column, some of those responses have also been included in this book since they have created a dialogue between the columnist and the readers. Through her opinion column Dr. Sepulveda has invited everybody to openly discuss the issues that affect Latinos and the community at large, but also she speaks of her views on a wide rage of other topics.

The entirety of the proceeds from the sales of "Do You Hear My Accent When I Write: The Voice of A Latina Immigrant" are being donated to the Latino Research Center to promote its mission.
