Video recordings of Loida Maritza PÉrez at the 2011 UND Writers Conference.

Loida Maritza Pérez, author of Geographies of Home, was born in the Dominican Republic in 1963. At the time of her birth, the Dominican Republic was awash in political and economic chaos caused by the ruthless dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. Though he was assassinated two years prior to Pérez's birth, the effects of his 31 year dictatorship were still being felt throughout this small island nation. Due to the economic strain, Pérez's family moved to the United States when she was three years old.
