Author of The House on Mango Street and Caramelo
for the great fun of being the 2013 Grand Marshall of the San Antonio Riverwalk Parade
A special thanks to Nancy Hunt of the Paseo del Rio Association, whose idea it was to make books this year's theme!
My thanks also to all the "floaters" who agreed to ride onboard Float Number One with me, and to Macondo writer Stephanie Griest who appeared out of nowhere to wish us a buen viaje.
Sandra discusses The House on Mango Street
on WBEZ Chicago radio's "Afternoon Shift"
The interview with Niala Boodhoo explores why the book still resonates with so many almost 30 years after its release, and includes a discussion with Vivian Garcia, an after-school Instructor for Enlace at Madero Middle School and one of her students, 7th-grader Brian Garcia.
