Google Hangout with Congressman Luis Gutiérrez, author of the just released memoir Still Dreaming

By: Viviana Hurtado, Ph.D.

Join us today, as we hang out with Congressman Luis Gutiérrez–the Illinois Democrat who publishes this October his memoir Still Dreaming. Both critics and supporters call Congressman Gutiérrez a “maverick”–for bucking both Republicans and President Obama as he fights for issues, especially comprehensive immigration reform. Learn about his childhood in Chicago and Puerto Rico and his experiences working his way up through the Chicago city council to Congress–each a political minefield in its own right. In the telling of his story framed by the politics of the last 30 years, the Congressman shares a quintessential American story of (im)migration, hard work, and determination.

    I really enjoyed the Luis Gutierrez interview. Vivian did an awesome job interviewing Luis Gutierrez. I would love to win a copy of this book, and once I finish I will pass it along to my siblings. I am from Chicago, and he is a great role model for the youth.
