This Friday, November 14th from 6:00-8:00 p.m., The College of Educational Studies, through Librería Martinez de Chapman University, is hosting one of Spanish televisions most popular talk show hosts and journalist, Cristina Saralegui.

Cristina was on Univision, broadcasted throughout all of the United States and Latin America, on a show that captured the interests of Latinos and others all over the world. She interviewed prominent as well as controversial figures and kept folks up to date on the latest hot topics. Once the editor of Cosmopolitan in Español, Cristina now has a radio show on Serious XM satellite radio, which is also broadcast nationally and internationally. ‘Cristina Entre Amigos’ is a talk show which addresses social issues in an entertaining and informative manner. Cristina wants to inspire every woman and man to become all that they can be.

As a young woman, Cristina learned quickly that this was a man’s world and that women had to pave their paths to become respected and treated equally. In her latest book, Rise Up and Shine, she tells all about her past – the good, the bad, the ugly – and lines the pages with the wisdom she has garnered over the years and shares her advice with her readers.

This book comes after hundreds of interviews where the first thing asked of Cristina was how did she do it, gaining fame, and having a family and demanding job. Now, we have the great opportunity to meet and greet her first hand and to buy her book at our very own bookstore in downtown Santa Ana. We are located at 216 N. Broadway near 3rd Street and two nearby parking structures make parking readily available.

Come by Librería Martinez de Chapman University this Friday night, where Mac, Anaida and Mari Carmen, the Chapman faculty and staff now organizing these events í- will welcome you to this exciting book talk and book signing.
