Outdoor Book Signing at Village Books

Village Books is pleased to partner with Community to Community Development in bringing Rosa Martha Zárate Macías for an outdoor book-signing in celebration of the bi-lingual publication of Our Grandfathers Were Braceros and We Too... 

Our Grandfathers Were Braceros and We Too... is a historical and living testimonial to the laborers who left their homes in Mexico during WWII to do their part in the war effort and with the hope of a better life for their families. Besides the facts of their struggle that still continues, the book is filled with testimonials from the dwindling number of survivors of that time. 

Thousands of braceros, literally men working with their arms, formed an organization named, Alianza de Ex Braceros del Norte 1942-1964 (Alliance of Ex Braceros in the North 1942-1964), to persist in seeking the compensation they were denied by both the U.S. and Mexico as well as the recognition by both countries of the sacrifices they made.
