LILY E. ESPINOZA
Putting a pen to paper for me is a therapeutic exercise that inspires me to understand my thoughts and my world in wonderous ways. I am privileged to have turned my passion for self-reflection into books that I can now share with you. Please take the time to peruse my official Author Portfolio website to understand my work and influences. You are invited to join me in the city of Berkeley for the Bay Area Book Festival Sunday, May 7, 2023!. Please stop by to hear about my new book! I will be there with copies of my new book, Nurturing Our Self: During college, everyday life, and the job search (2022) [#NOS} and my first book, Not Getting Stuck: Success stories of being Latina and transferring from a California community college (2017) [#NGS].

The annual Mexican Independence Day celebration at Solano Community College takes place in Solano County in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California. Dr. Espinoza has been invited to speak across the nation on topics ranging from cultural and gender issues to educational research on retention and student success.

NEW BOOK NURTURING OUR SELF: DURING COLLEGE, EVERYDAY LIFE, AND IN THE JOB SEARCH.
Recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic is not going to happen without some serious self-reflection. My new book is a map for self reflection that centers our sense of well-being and nurturing for educators.
