In today’s episode, Jaye interviews Allison K. Garcia, author of the highly rated novel Vivir el Dream. Allison shares her perspective as a writer, counselor, and Christian active in her church and the local Latino community. The stories of those she has known and lived life with serve as inspiration for her novel about the undocumented immigrant experience. Vivir el Dream is an evocative book with many themes woven throughout, such as Christian faith, desperation, empathy, and hope. Jaye’s conversation with Allison also touches on the hostile environment the rise of Trump has cultivated for people of color, including Latinos, and other vulnerable people.
