“Sergio Troncoso has dedicated his life to creating a positive learning environment through reading and making a difference in people’s lives. His presentation at Ysleta Middle School was an enthusiastic inspiration to parents, teachers, and most of all students who are growing up in struggling neighborhoods as did Mr. Troncoso. This presentation set the foundation to encourage multiculturalism and academic excellence in schools, and promoted literacy. Mr. Troncoso is a role model for bilingual communities. His life stories gained the respect of everyone in attendance, infusing his audience with tremendous motivation and instilling in them an appetite for the joys of learning through literacy. His passion for literacy, literature, and bilingualism was empowering!”
Melissa A. Jordan, Communities in Schools Program Coordinator, Ysleta Middle School, El Paso, Texas

Sergio Troncoso is a sought-after speaker at high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation. To schedule a reading or appearance, or to arrange a talk with your book club or school group, contact him at SergioTroncoso@gmail.com.

“Sergio Troncoso reads with humor, dramatic flair, and such genuine sincerity that the audience cannot help but be deeply engaged and moved. His fiction and nonfiction defy easy stereotypes or expectations and should appeal to anyone interested in what it means to be an American, what it means to be a father, husband, daughter, sister, brother, or son. Sergio and his writing speak to life in the borderlands between Mexico and the United States, female and male, parent and child, healthy and ill in ways that are at once enlightening, provocative, stirring, and satisfying. His warmth and intelligence make everyone feel included in the conversation.”
Eileen Pollack, author of Breaking and Entering, and professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
