THIS WEEK'S FIVE:
2) Video: Why Dominicans Own So Many New York Bodegas
SPOTLIGHT SERIES
Author Veronica Chambers
Author Veronica Chambers
I’m in the middle of reading ‘The Go-Between’ a novel by bestselling Panamanian-Dominican author Veronica Chambers. In an often untold narrative about race and class in the Latinx community, the book is about Camilla, a Mexican teenager whose mother is a rich, successful + glamorous Telenovela actress in Mexico City. When her mom gets her first American acting gig, the family moves to the US for the first time + Cami is enrolled in a posh private school in LA. Her mom stars as a not-so-glamorous maid on a sitcom (latinos on American tv playing maids - surprise, surprise). At school, all of the kids very ignorantly assume Cami is a scholarship kid and the child of a local domestic worker - so Cami starts to play along with the stereotype to play a prank on them. If you’re looking for a book to gift to a teen or young adult in your life, I highly recommend it. (Or for yourself - I’m not a teen & found it hilarious). Learn more or buy it here.
