Watch the Live Stream


Join us for an evening with Esmeralda Santiago to cap off our inaugural Enlightened Living Day at UC.

Esmeralda Santiago was born in Puerto Rico and came to the United States when she was 13 years old. She is the author of three memoirs, two novels, a children’s book, and has co-edited two anthologies of Latino literature. Her transcultural experiences growing up in a rural barrio, poor and disenfranchised, inspire much of her work. Her books have been translated into 15 languages.
