Are You Willing to Get Up Early Tomorrow For a Lively Discussion?


Are Public School Students and University Students Exposed to Central American Literature or Studies?

Books That Students Can Identify With and Feel Pride and Joy When They Read Them?

I strongly believe in the contents and message of my book “Hope in Times of Darkness: A Salvadoran American Experience.” One of the main goals of my book is to inspire and motivate our students to remain in school, learn, and to become leaders. Especially to avoid getting involved with gangs.

There is rather not much literature/books focused on the Central American/Salvadoran American experience. Therefore, our students need to learn about their own history, culture, and roots to be proud and to respect each other. Through reading and writing.

In my book, I included chapters that touched on Latino and African American relations, Mexican American and Salvadoran American relations, violence in our society, among many other important social issues. I talked about my experiences attending Menlo Ave. Elementary School, James A. Foshay Jr. High School, and applying and attending school in Rochester, Minnesota through A Better Chance scholarship program. Graduating from Occidental College.

I want students to learn more about academic opportunities (ABC Program) and to also learn about their own community through the book that I have published through Rowman & Littlefield.

It was not an easy process, by any means, getting my manuscript accepted and finding a suitable and reputable publisher. I was told by one agent that she was not interested since Salvadorans/Latinos do not go to bookstores or libraries to read.

Fortunately, I did not give up. Now students will have an opportunity to read a book that discusses and focuses on the Salvadoran American/Central American experience. I am planning to do various book presentations. If you are interested in seeing my upcoming presentations or ordering my book, please visit my new web site:
