Sandra Cisneros & Manuel Muñoz: A Conversation
Saturday, November 19, 2022 @ 5:30 pm
300 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132 United States
Woman Without Shame: Poems is Sandra Cisneros‘ first book of poetry in 28 years. The collection comprises dozens of never-before-seen poems and includes songs, elegies, and declarations that chronicle her pilgrimage toward rebirth and the recognition of her prerogative as a woman artist. These are bluntly honest and often humorous meditations on memory, desire, and the essential nature of love. The stories in Manuel Muñoz‘s The Consequences are mostly set in the 1980s in the small towns surrounding Fresno. He writes about the Mexican and Mexican American farmworkers who put food on our tables, their families’ daily struggles, and their encounters with “la migra,” the feared agents of immigration enforcement and border patrols. In The Consequences, obligations can shape us, support us, and sometimes derail us.
