Interview with Author Julia Torres

“Julia from playground battles in New Jersey to Operation Desert Shield, from battling the effects of a date-rape drug to government-ordered BP pills silently waging war on her body. This is the explosive story of a young woman who never backs down, whether a decorated soldier bringing to light the cover-up of sexual harassment in the armed forces or later working as an undercover agent. As a high school and college English/Theatre teacher for forty-seven years, I recommend this brave, jaw-dropping book that chronicles the experiences of a true hero for readers 14 to 94.” ~ Sarah Rosenberg, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Open Hydrant Theatre Company, Bronx, New York

“In her memoir, Julia vividly and candidly invites us to share intimate moments which shaped her into the woman she is today, still standing. Her personal account of perseverance and triumph reminds us that our circumstances do not define us but rather molds us into the best version of ourselves.” ~ Patty Smith, LT COL, USA

Hudson County NJ. was an amazing place to grow up in and attend school. Many of us remember when Ron Howard, the Fonz, Joanie and others were on Happy Days. We also enjoyed Laverne and Shirley, the great film “Saturday Night Fever” with John Travolta. Farrah Fawcett and the other angels. Gladys Knights and the Pips, Barry White, Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five, Elton John, Tony Orlando and Dawn. The famous duets Donny and Marie and Sonny and Cher. The heart throb Tony De Franco and shows like Brady Bunch to name a few of what our culture was like back in the day. We will reminisce about this little piece of Heaven on Earth that made our Neighborhood. The place we love so much and for many of us, after thirty years are not able to forget. Jiannell Tavarez swings by Cubanarama to talk about the third Hudson County Reunion and future plans for the Fourth Year. We are proud to be from Hudson County.
