Join Francisco Jiménez, an award winning author, and his son, Pancho Jiménez, in a conversation about Reaching Out, a memoir in which Francisco related his experiences as a child of migrant workers and first generation college student at the University.
In this eloquent, transfixing account, Jiménez again achieves a masterful addition to the literature of the memoir. - Smithsonian Magazine
