This novel follows the daughter of a Cuban immigrant in learning more about her history–– setting in motion a multigenerational family story that leaps across the Americas.

July Celebrate the NineTEAnth
We have an exciting event planned for our July Celebrate the 19th! We will be joined by Annie Chen, one of our AAUW@UCD students who graduated in 2019. She will be hosting a virtual tasting of teas from her home country of Taiwan, on Monday, July 19th at 5:30pm.
The teas will be sent from Taiwan to Davis, and we’ll distribute them to those who are able to join us. We sent out an email with a Google Form for members that would like to join. This event was originally planned for the May Celebrate the 19th, but has been postponed to account for the arrival of the teas.
We look forward to seeing you there!
