Bread and Roses welcomes author Sandra Cisneros.

Bread and Roses welcomes Sandra Cisneros, internationally acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street.  Her new illustrated novel, Have You Seen Marie? was written in the wake of her mother's death and explores the netherworld between loss and healing, and the spiritual awareness that can only enter a heart that has been broken open. 

We discuss her work, writer's life, and experiences as a self-described "chingona" (a strong, independent woman) despite societal, cultural and familial pressure to conform to traditional gender roles.

Her research on sexualized violence in Syria has been highlighted in the Atlantic, the New York Times and has been presented to the United Nations.
