ONCE I WAS YOU A Memoir of Love and Hate in a Torn America

by | Read by Maria Hinojosa

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Veteran journalist Maria Hinojosa, anchor and executive producer of NPR's "Latino USA" and founder of Futuro Media Group, narrates her story of growing up in a Mexican immigrant family and finding her way in life and in her career in the big city as a young adult. She also describes how her background has influenced her approach to covering immigration issues as a journalist. Narrating her own work allows Hinojosa to put the most fitting vocal emphases on her text. She reads at a leisurely pace in a lower tone, and one hears her professional bearing. Her pronunciation of the Spanish words and phrases throughout the text is, naturally, an asset to the narration. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
