A Visit with Author Luis Urrea

Maryville Talks Books features interviews by noted authors.

Luis Alberto Urrea humorously draws audience members into his personal journey to connect with his own history. After growing up listening to family folklore about his great aunt Teresita, and her magical healing powers, he knew he had to keep her memory alive. He spent 26 years researching before he felt that he could properly tell the tale of this young Mexican Joan of Arc. Urrea’s efforts magnificently culminated in “The Hummingbird’s Daughter” and the sequel, “Queen of America.”
