'La Familia: An International Love Story' Reading & Conversation

La Familia details the emergence of Mano a Mano, a St. Paul-based international development organization. It brings to life a remarkable story of cross-cultural love and collaboration that is especially powerful in these difficult days of cultural and racial unrest.

Author Dr. Mary Martin based this book on her three years of interviewing in Minnesota and Bolivia, and weaves stories of Mano a Mano and those who formed this non-profit organization into a lovely, inspiring tapestry. La Familia provides a moving account of childhood challenges, intercultural pitfalls, and the ultimate creation of grassroots international partnership at its best.
