Ana Castillo: My Mother’s Mexico
December 13, Thursday, 3:45 pm , Kossuth Street 1, American Corner                        

Ana Castillo is a Chicana poet, essayist, editor, and novelist who explores the tribulations of womanhood and offers pungent socio-political comment. Castillo’s work is based on established oral and literary traditions, yet at the same time it is highly innovative. Born and raised in Chicago, Castillo credits the rich storytelling tradition of her Mexican heritage as the foundation for her writing. When she was nine years old, she wrote her first poems following the death of her grandmother. Please register for the event at no later than December 12, 2012.
