Speaker Biography: Esmeralda Santiago emigrated from Puerto Rico to the United States with her family when she was 13. Her writing career evolved from her work as a producer-writer of documentary and educational films. Her essays and opinion pieces have run in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, House & Garden and Sports Illustrated. Upon publication of her first book, the memoir "When I Was Puerto Rican," Santiago was hailed as "a welcome new voice, full of passion and authority," by Washington Post Book World. Her new novel is "Conquistadora."
