A Morning with Maria Hinojosa

A Morning with Maria Hinojosa

Maria ​Hinojosa is an Emmy Award–winning journalist, a bestselling author, and was the first Latina to found a national independent nonprofit newsroom in the United States. But before all that, she was a girl with big hair and even bigger dreams. Born in Mexico and raised in the vibrant neighborhood of Hyde Park, Chicago, Maria was always looking for ways to better understand the world around her—and where she fit into it.


In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month we will have Maria in conversation about her new book Once I was You, which is adapted for Young Readers and aims to be an inspiration to them to find their voice. Space is Limited.

Books will be sold on site by Blue Willow BookStore.
