Cafecito con... Esmeralda Santiago: Las Madres
They call themselves Las Madres, a close-knit group of three women who, over the course of a decades-long friendship, have created their own kind of family. Their story begins in Puerto Rico in the 1970s, and takes the reader to the Bronx in 2017. A rich and deeply felt novel about friendships that remind us of our own, this Cafecito con… centers on Las Madres, a new book by prolific Puerto Rican author, Esmeralda Santiago.
Join the book’s author, Esmeralda Santiago, and fellow authors Sandra Guzmán, Elisabet Velasquez, and Quiara Alegría Hudes as they explore the themes of family secrets, belonging, and the boundless love and belonging in the face of disasters both natural and man-made.
This event is part of BoriMix – Puerto Rico Fest.
