An Evening with Sandra Cisneros.
A bilingual reading from A House of My Own featured Sandra Cisneros and Liliana Valenzuela, her Spanish translator. The performance, benefiting the local charity Jovenes Adelante, which grants scholarships to honors students from San Miguel de Allende who otherwise could not afford to attend university, took place on Friday, February 3, 2017, at Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende.

The House on Mango Street made the “Little List: 11 Short Books with Big Stories” over at Off the Shelf. They write, “these short tales pack quite the punch in under 200 pages. Though these books won’t take you much time to read, I’m sure they will stay with you for some time after you finish.”
A classroom set of 35 copies of La Casa en Mango Street, the Spanish language translation of The House On Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, was awarded by an independent bookstore in Delaware to a local high school teacher.
"We need to get more international. Given the sharp turn rightward in America and the world, I hope that event folks at bookstores all across the country start putting together more and more programs for books and authors in translation. It's already a trend in several stores across the country, in places like Chicago, San Francisco and Houston, not to mention right here in Brooklyn. But I want to see Can Xue in Cleveland, or László Krasznahorkai in Tuscaloosa, or Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o in Albuquerque. You know how you fight fascism? Read outside your borders."
