Growing up in Rural New Mexico

Gloria Zamora, author of Sweet Nata: Growing up in Rural New Mexico, offers an authentic perspective on the Hispanic experience in New Mexico. Zamora reveals interactions with her parents, grandparents, and other family members that influenced her most in life. Set during the 1950s and 1960s in Mora and Corrales, New Mexico, Sweet Nata is a unique glimpse into daily family and a community life. Gloria’s narrative of native New Mexican culture and history is both as relatable for younger audiences as it is nostalgic for older generations.
