Congressman Luis Gutierrez’s frank, often hilarious memoir of political awakening and savvy activism in Still Dreaming: My Journey from the Barrio to Capitol Hill. Beloved by the immigrants and working people whose rights he has championed, Luis Gutierrez is sometimes referred to as the “Martin Luther King” or even “Moses” of Latinos. His forward-thinking perspectives have made him integral in the debates surrounding immigration reform, and his forthright manner has made him a staple of television news commentary. In the no-nonsense, street-savvy, wise-cracking, and passionate voice that has won him such success and acclaim, Gutierrez recounts his political rise. STILL DREAMING is an inspirational, politically-aware memoir that illustrates how a cabdriver and pesky community organizer became such an influential member of Congress.
