Mexican-American author Sandra Cisneros shared her experiences growing up amidst two cultures and how those experiences led her to write her book The House on Mango Street.
This free event included Mexican mezzo-soprano Paulina Villarreal performing excerpts from composer Derek Bermel’s Mango Suite, a new musical work inspired by Cisneros' book.
Labyrinth Books will be selling English and Spanish versions of The House on Mango Street at the event starting at 2pm.
The Mango Suite Project is supported in part by an award from the National
