Sonia Manzano and Edwidge Danticat: A Conversation
Sunday, November 22, 2015 @ 9:30 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
In Edwidge Danticat’s novel, Untwine, a woman wakes in a hospital, injured and unable to speak or move, and revisits her past in order to determine if she has a future worth recovering for. In Becoming Maria: Love and Chaos in the South Bronx, one of America’s most influential Latinas, Sonia Manzano — the actress who played ‘Maria’ on Sesame Street — delivers a beautifully wrought coming-of-age memoir. And in Miracle on 133rd St, Manzano has cooked up a children’s tale about how the simplest things — like the tantalizing smell of Christmas dinner and the sharing of it —can become a holiday miracle.
