This week Dr. Thelma Reyna brings us an interview with author Yolanda Nava who has not let her loss of sight impede her from writing. Thelma interviews Yolanda about her book Through the Dark, in which she reflects on her loss of sight and how it has liberated her to “see” in other ways.
Also this week, we post another interview with acclaimed musician and singer Little Joe Hernandez of Little Joe Y La Familia. In this interview Little Joe talks about the influence of the Orchestra Tejana of Beto Villa on Little Joe’s own unique big band sound.
