NCRL Virtual Reads with Noé Álvarez

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

Connect with authors online! This summer, we are bringing you an incredible line up of authors for NCRL Virtual Reads.

Noé Álvarez’s debut memoir, Spirit Run is the electrifying story of a son of working-class Mexican immigrants who fled a life of labor in fruit-packing plants to run in an Indigenous marathon from Canada to Guatemala, reminaging North America and his place in it.

“This book is not like any other out there. You will see this country in a fresh way, and you might see aspects of your own soul. A beautiful run.” -Luís Alberto Urrea, author of The House of Broken Angels

Noé was born to  Mexican immigrant parents and raised working-class in Yakima, Washington. He lives in Boston, where, until recently, he worked as a security officer at one of the nation’s oldest libraries, the Boston Athenaeum. Learn more at
