featuring Geovani Ramirez, Teaching Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature

Sandra Cisneros is one of the most brilliant of today’s young writers. Her work is sensitive, alert, nuanceful . . . rich with music and picture.” Gwendolyn Books

Acclaimed by critics, beloved by children, their parents and grandparents, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, it has entered the canon of coming-of-age classics. Random House Audio

Cisneros draws on her rich [Latino] heritage . . . and seduces with precise, spare prose, creating unforgettable characters we want to lift off the page. She is not only a gifted writer, but an absolutely essential one. The New York Times Book Review

Marvelous . . . spare yet luminous. The subtle power of Cisneros’s storytelling is evident. She communicates all the rapture and rage of growing up in a modern world. San Francisco Chronicle

Few other books in our time have touched so many readers. —Vintage Classics


Meeting Date: Tuesdays, June 7 and 14
