In his book, Meléndez-Badillo tells the story of how a cluster of self-educated workers burst into Puerto Rico’s world of letters and navigated the colonial polity that emerged from the 1898 US occupation. After the discussion, whose themes are outlined below, Jorell and José will open the floor for audience members to ask questions.
