Today we talk to Karla Cornejo Villavicencio, author of The Undocumented Americans, and Marcelo Hernández Castillo, author of Children of the Land. Among other topics, we discuss what it is like growing up without papers, what it feels like to publish memoirs at a young age, and the intersection of memory, writing and taking care of ourselves.

In this series, we bring you fresh knowledge and insight from the team at the Immigration Initiative at Harvard, led by our Director, Professor Roberto G. Gonzales, and featuring voices from the field. Join us as we get to know our neighbors through their stories.

This podcast is hosted by Dr Jennifer Allsopp and produced by Xiren Wang and Dr Jennifer Allsopp.
