Northeastern Illinois University welcomes Alejandra Campoverdi for a discussion of her new, national bestseller, “First Gen: A Memoir.” This moderated, hybrid event will take place on the Main Campus at the Angelina Pedroso Center for Diversity and Intercultural Affairs. In-person capacity is limited to 70 attendees.

RSVP is required. Northeastern students will receive priority. An RSVP confirmation will be provided for in-person attendance. Once event capacity is reached, a livestream link will be sent to those who have RSVPd. In-person guests will receive a free copy of “First Gen” upon arrival. 

First Gen: A Memoir” is Campoverdi’s unflinching personal story about navigating social mobility as a first-generation Latina in the United States. It is both a riveting autobiography and an examination of the unacknowledged emotional tolls of being a trailblazer.
