Immigrants coming to the United States have diverse, personal stories to share about their life-changing travels, and those stories are often lost with time.
Ana María González is an immigrant from Mexico. She is a language professor at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin. González began gathering the immigrant stories of her colleagues, and published them in 2013 in a bilingual anthology called “Déjame que te cuente,” “Let Me Tell You.” She has since published two more volumes.
TPR’s Norma Martinez had a chance to talk with Gonzalez about this ever-growing collection of stories, and about her own immigrant story.
