Reader Resources

More than 87 universities have adopted Enrique’s Journey as their freshman or all-campus read. Many high schools have also added the book to their curricula. And now middle schools are adopting the young adult version of Enrique’s Journey common reads. The young adult version will be published in Spanish in April 2015.

In the revised edition of Enrique’s Journey published in February 2014, Random House added materials to help readers and book clubs, including a Q & A with the author, a conversation with Enrique, and discussion questions.


small OPED Photo_Page_1 Sonia Nazario’s latest opinion piece was featured on the cover of the New York Times Sunday Review 8/14/16. It’s good news! The piece shows how US violence prevention and intervention programs are helping Honduras, the country Enrique came from, reduce homicides. These programs have helped Honduras but also the U.S. by reducing the number of children fleeing these neighborhoods to migrate north.
Instead of the usual programs the U.S. funds, which focus on suppression, we should replicate these programs elsewhere in central america. If you are moved by the story of Pastor Daniel Pacheco, who puts himself in the line of fire to bring peace to the neighborhood I write about, please donate whatever you can HERE :
