Latinos are our largest, oldest, most undercounted, fastest growing, and least understood communities. Prizewinning Marie Arana explains what they have meant to America and introduces her new book, Latinoland.
Marie Arana’s work features heavily on this Audible audio books feature. Both the English and Spanish editions of Bolívar as well as Silver, Sword and Stone are celebrated as works that “find authors from the land of your ancestors and learn why reclaiming Latino heritage has become so popular worldwide”
“…Marie Arana deftly chronicles his epic life with propulsive prose, including a killer first sentence: “They heard him before they saw him: the sound of hooves striking the earth, steady as a heartbeat, urgent as a revolution.””
Marie Arana’s Silver, Sword, and Stone takes the readers from pre-Columbian times through the region’s conquest, independence movements, dirty wars, and right down to the present. In doing so, the book explores three driving forces in the region’s history: mining—and particularly mining, violence, and religion through the tales of three contemporary Latin Americans. In this episode, the award-winning author tells AS/COA’s Carin Zissis why she wrote this sweeping history now.
