Wise Latinas Book Launch at La Casa Azul by Toni Margarita Plummer

It must be over two years ago now when Jennifer De Leon first mentioned to me that she was putting together an anthology of essays on the Latina experience in college. I had met Jennifer in 2009, when we attended the Macondo Workshop in San Antonio, Texas for the first time. For the ice breaker we had the pleasure of introducing each other to the group. That week I learned that the issue of Latinas in college was a very passionate one for Jennifer and so I wasn’t surprised to hear she was pursuing this project.
