Sandra Cisneros reads from her acclaimed novel followed by a conversation in English and Spanish with Mariel Fiori and Dinaw Mengestu.

The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros has been recognized by critics, professors, and readers alike as one of most important contributions to modern literature. This landmark story collection relates the triumphant coming-of-age of young Esperanza Cordero who finds her own voice and inner potential to overcome the impediments of poverty, gender, and her Chicana-American heritage.

Signed copies of The House on Mango Street will be available for sale in the lobby from Oblong Books and Music.

Live-streaming of this event made possible by Radio Kingston.

Sandra Cisneros’s appearance made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts and Radio Kingston.
