Essential reading from an expert voice: Luis A. Miranda, Jr.’s personal and political memoir reveals a deep understanding of Latino culture and how to build community to change our world for the better.

A veteran of New York and national politics, Luis Miranda embodies the relentless spirit of progress of American immigrants.

There is no one on the Latino, New York, and national political scene with the breadth of experience, passion, and storytelling charm of Luis Miranda. In "Relentless," he shares a fascinating narrative of his life and career—from his early days as a radically-minded Puerto Rican activist to his decades of political advice and problem-solving.

Miranda recounts the thrill of the ascendancy of "Hamilton," created by his son Lin-Manuel, and details Puerto Rico's suffering after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Amid the triumphs and challenges, Miranda examines what his experience reveals about our ever-changing politics, demographics, and society.




Luis A. Miranda, Jr. arrived in New York City from Puerto Rico in 1974 to study psychology at NYU, but soon found himself drawn to community action when he organized his neighbors to fight for better schools for their children. In the 1980s he was a special advisor for Hispanic Affairs to Mayor Ed Koch, and he continued to serve in key roles for the Dinkins and Giuliani administrations. As a founding partner of the MirRam Group, Miranda has consulted on several successful political campaigns, including the senatorial campaigns of Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Most recently he managed New York Attorney General Letitia James’ successful reelection. Miranda is the founding president of the Hispanic Federation and is currently the chairperson of the Latino Victory Fund, the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, Viva Broadway, and the Public Theater. He is a board member of The City, and former chair of the Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center.



David Begnaud has become an iconic figure in the journalism world, aptly dubbed “America’s Storyteller.” For nearly a decade, as the Emmy Award-winning Lead National Correspondent for CBS Mornings, he traveled the country to cover disaster and tragedy with empathy, compassion, and integrity.  David was hailed for his reporting on Hurricane Maria's aftermath in Puerto Rico, which won him the George Polk award for public service, as well as international praise for his dedication to telling the stories of those suffering and underserved. His expansive use of social media drove home his commitment to exposing injustice wherever he found it. Today, David continues to speak truth through his feature stories, stories that uplift us and remind us of our shared humanity.
