NPR’s Best Books of 2020 BookPage’s Best Books of 2020 Real Simple’s Best Books of 2020 Boston.com readers voted one of Best Books of 2020 “Anyone striving to understand and improve this country should read her story.” —Gloria Steinem, author of My Life on the Road The Emmy Award–winning journalist and anchor of NPR’s Latino USA tells the story of immigration in America through her family’s experiences and decades of reporting, painting an unflinching portrait of a country in crisis in this memoir that is “quite simply beautiful, written in Maria Hinojosa’s honest, passionate voice” (BookPage). Maria Hinojosa is an award-winning journalist who, for nearly thirty years, has reported on stories and communities in America that often go ignored by the mainstream media—from tales of hope in the South Bronx to the unseen victims of the War on Terror and the first detention camps in the US. Bestselling author Julia Álvarez has called her “one of the most important, respected, and beloved cultural leaders in the Latinx community.” In Once I Was You, Maria shares her intimate experience growing up Mexican American on the South Side of Chicago. She offers a personal and illuminating account of how the rhetoric around immigration has not only long informed American attitudes toward outsiders, but also sanctioned willful negligence and profiteering at the expense of our country’s most vulnerable populations—charging us with the broken system we have today. An urgent call to fellow Americans to open their eyes to the immigration crisis and understand that it affects us all, this honest and heartrending memoir paints a vivid portrait of how we got here and what it means to be a survivor, a feminist, a citizen, and a journalist who owns her voice while striving for the truth. Also available in Spanish as Una vez fui tú.

When tragedy strikes, Irene and John come together to support the daughter they love so dearly. What takes longer is to remember how they really feel about each other.

An inspiring, timely, and conversation-starting memoir from the barrier-breaking and Emmy Award–winning journalist Ilia Calderón—the first Afro-Latina to anchor a high-profile newscast for a major Hispanic broadcast network in the United States—about following your dreams, overcoming prejudice, and embracing your identity. As a child, Ilia Calderón felt like a typical girl from Colombia. In Chocó, the Afro-Latino province where she grew up, your skin could be any shade and you’d still be considered blood. Race was a non-issue, and Ilia didn’t think much about it—until she left her community to attend high school and college in Medellín. For the first time, she became familiar with horrifying racial slurs thrown at her both inside and outside of the classroom. From that point on, she resolved to become “deaf” to racism, determined to overcome it in every way she could, even when she was told time and time again that prominent castings weren’t “for people like you.” When a twist of fate presented her the opportunity of a lifetime at Telemundo in Miami, she was excited to start a new life, and identity, in the United States, where racial boundaries, she believed, had long since dissolved and equality was the rule. Instead, in her new life as an American, she faced a new type of racial discrimination, as an immigrant women of color speaking to the increasingly marginalized Latinx community in Spanish. Now, Ilia draws back the curtain on the ups and downs of her remarkable life and career. From personal inner struggles to professional issues—such as being directly threatened by a Ku Klux Klan member after an interview—she discusses how she built a new identity in the United States in the midst of racially charged violence and political polarization. Along the way, she’ll show how she’s overcome fear and confronted hate head on, and the inspirational philosophy that has always propelled her forward.

“El punto de vista de María es poderoso y vital. Hace años, cuando In the Heights empezaba a presentarse en teatros off-Broadway, María corrió la voz en nuestra comunidad para que apoyáramos este nuevo musical que trataba sobre nuestros vecindarios. Ella ha sido una campeona de nuestros triunfos, una crítica de nuestros detractores y una fuerza clave para enfrentar y corregir los errores de nuestra sociedad. Cuando María habla, estoy listo para escuchar y aprender de ella.” —Lin-Manuel Miranda La periodista ganadora de cuatro premios Emmy y presentadora de Latino USA de NPR, María Hinojosa, cuenta la historia de la inmigración en los Estados Unidos a través de las experiencias de su familia y décadas de hacer reportajes, con lo cual crea un riguroso retrato de un país en crisis. María Hinojosa es una periodista galardonada que ha colaborado con las cadenas más respetadas y se ha distinguido por realizar reportajes con un toque humano. En estas memorias escritas con gran belleza, nos relata la historia de la política de inmigración de los EE.UU. que nos ha llevado al punto en que estamos hoy, al mismo tiempo que nos comparte su historia profundamente personal. Durante treinta años, María Hinojosa ha informado sobre historias y comunidades en los Estados Unidos que a menudo son ignoradas por los principales medios de comunicación. La autora de bestsellers Julia Álvarez la ha llamado “una de las líderes culturales más importantes, respetadas y queridas de la comunidad Latinx”. En Una vez fui tú, María nos comparte su experiencia personal de haber crecido como mexicanoamericana en el sur de Chicago y documentar el páramo existencial de los campos de detención de inmigrantes para los medios de comunicación que a menudo cuestionaban su trabajo. En estas páginas, María ofrece un relato personal y revelador de cómo la retórica en torno a la inmigración no solo ha influido en las actitudes de los estadounidenses hacia los extranjeros, sino que también ha permitido la negligencia intencional y el lucro a expensas de las poblaciones más vulnerables de nuestro país, lo que ha propiciado el sistema resquebrajado que tenemos hoy en día. Estas memorias honestas y estremecedoras crean un vívido retrato de cómo llegamos aquí y lo que significa ser una superviviente, una feminista, una ciudadana y una periodista que hace valer su propia voz mientras lucha por la verdad. Una vez fui tú es un llamado urgente a los compatriotas estadounidenses para que abran los ojos a la crisis de la inmigración y entiendan que nos afecta a todos. También disponible en inglés como Once I Was You.

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing and Nowhere But Here comes a love story about a Craigslist “missed connection” post that gives two people a second chance at love fifteen years after they were separated in New York City. To the Green-eyed Lovebird: We met fifteen years ago, almost to the day, when I moved my stuff into the NYU dorm room next to yours at Senior House. You called us fast friends. I like to think it was more. We lived on nothing but the excitement of finding ourselves through music (you were obsessed with Jeff Buckley), photography (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of you), hanging out in Washington Square Park, and all the weird things we did to make money. I learned more about myself that year than any other. Yet, somehow, it all fell apart. We lost touch the summer after graduation when I went to South America to work for National Geographic. When I came back, you were gone. A part of me still wonders if I pushed you too hard after the wedding… I didn’t see you again until a month ago. It was a Wednesday. You were rocking back on your heels, balancing on that thick yellow line that runs along the subway platform, waiting for the F train. I didn’t know it was you until it was too late, and then you were gone. Again. You said my name; I saw it on your lips. I tried to will the train to stop, just so I could say hello. After seeing you, all of the youthful feelings and memories came flooding back to me, and now I’ve spent the better part of a month wondering what your life is like. I might be totally out of my mind, but would you like to get a drink with me and catch up on the last decade and a half? M
