Ana Menendez at Books and Books.

Ana Menendez was a powerful voice in the Miami Herald speaking out in support of the striking UNICCO janitors at UM. She did this over the virtual silence, and sometimes explicit opposition, of the Herald. Now you can hear her speak and thank her in person.
Every week, Miami Herald columnist Ana Menendez regales us with her exquisite writing and thoughtful commentary. On Wednesday, June 7, 8pm, at Books & Books Coral Gables, she will open a new series, Between the Lines: Discussion with Miami Herald Columnists, which is created to bring you closer to some of your favorite Miami Herald columnists. Menéndez worked as a journalist for six years, first at The Miami Herald, where she covered Little Havana, and later with The Orange County Register in California. A graduate of NYU's creative writing program, she is the author of the collection of stories, In Cuba I Was a German Shepard and the novel, Loving Che. Find out how she keeps her columns fresh and exciting.
