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.

Leigh Anne Kranz hosts.

"How to Be a Chingona in Ten Easy Steps" by Sandra Cisneros

If you've seen the Hollywood movie, Rendition, you'll recognize the story of Saifullah Paracha. In the Hollywood movie, an innocent man is literally kidnapped off a plane by US agents, hooded, shackled and sent to a prison camp. This is essentially what happened to Saifullah Paracha, a Pakistani businessman who in 2003 was removed from a flight and sent to a horrendous US prison camp in Bagram, then on to Guantanamo. As in the movie, the Paracha family had no idea of his whereabouts for over a month. However, unlike the movie which has a happy Hollywood ending, Saifullah remains in Guantanamo where he has been held since 2004. Bread and Roses spoke to Saifullah Paracha's teenage daughter. She lives in Pakistan.
