“How Have I Not Read This?” Book Club Discussion of The House on Mango Street
How Have I Not Read This? Book Club Discussion of The House on Mango Street
featuring Sandra Cisneros in conversation with Marie Arana
Celebrate Latinx Heritage Month with a discussion of Sandra Cisneros’ beloved The House on Mango Street / La casa en mango street
First published in 1984, Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street has become a true modern classic. This coming-of-age story is acclaimed by critics, taught in both grade schools and universities, and beloved by readers of all ages. Told in a series of vignettes—sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous—Cisneros’ masterpiece tells the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero, a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become. With nearly seven million copies sold, and translated into more than two dozen languages, this is a life-changing story of childhood and self-discovery.
This fall, both The House on Mango Street and its Spanish translation La casa en mango street (translation by Elena Poniatowska), are on the list of new titles included in the NEA Big Read. Their, How Have I Not Read This? book club event is being held in partnership with Palabras Bilingual Bookstore!
We hope you will join Sandra, Marie, and the rest of us in reading (or revisiting) The House on Mango Street and discussing it at this meeting of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group’s How Have I Not Read This? book club. Read along with us at #HowHaveINotReadThis
