Exploring Culture and Education through literature with Junot Diaz - Miami Lit Podcast #9

Miami Lit Podcast

Junot Díaz is a Pulitzer prize winning author and professor at MIT. He is a master of prose and takes us on a journey through the Latino immigrant experience. We can proudly name him one of today's best Latino authors in the world. We hope you enjoy this brief interview as much as we have.    To Junot: You are an inspiration to us all. Many immigrants do not have the means to expose their arduous experience of going to a new land and living between two cultures. We thank you for enduring your hardships, they empowered you in ways we might not even know yet. [ A Martian in the island might be just what we need... ] Thanks for tuning in.

Junot Diaz, "ISLANDBORN"

Skylight Books Podcast Series

From New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Díaz comes a debut picture book about the magic of memory and the infinite power of the imagination. “Every kid in Lola's school was from somewhere else. Hers was a school of faraway places.” So when Lola's teacher asks the students to draw a picture of where their families immigrated from, all the kids are excited. Except Lola. She can't remember The Island—she left when she was just a baby. But with the help of her family and friends, and their memories—joyous, fantastical, heartbreaking, and frightening—Lola's imagination takes her on an extraordinary journey back to The Island.  As she draws closer to the heart of her family's story, Lola comes to understand the truth of her abuela's words: “Just because you don't remember a place doesn't mean it's not in you.” Gloriously illustrated and lyrically written, Islandborn is a celebration of creativity, diversity, and our imagination's boundless ability to connect us—to our families, to our past and to ourselves.
