Guest: Reyna Grande, Author of A Dream Called Home, The Distance Between Us, Across A Hundred Mountains El Otro Lado. “The Other side.” That’s what people in Reyna Grande’s Mexican hometown call the United States. Grande’s father left for the US to find work when she was two. And then her mother followed him across the border. When Reyna Grande was 9, her dad returned to Mexico for a visit and she begged him to carry her on his back across the border. It took three tries before they made it safely.
