The Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Sandra Cisneros for Martita, I Remember You

*Offsite
Tuesday, Sep 28, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Presented in partnership with the Portland Book Festival, a long-forgotten letter sets off a charged encounter with the past in this poignant and gorgeously told tale masterfully written by Sandra Cisneros, the celebrated bestselling author of The House on Mango Street, in a beautiful dual-language edition. Cisneros will appear live on Crowdcast to discuss her newest book, Martita, I Remember You, in conversation with Kali Fajardo-Anstine. Copies of Martita, I Remember You will be distributed for free to the first 150 attendees who reserve a copy. During the event, there will be a link to claim your book. Simply fill out the form and a book will be sent to you.

Register for the event at: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/wbfpbf-martita. Before the event begins, you will see a countdown and the event image. 

About Martita, I Remember You: As a young woman, Corina leaves her Mexican family in Chicago to pursue her dream of becoming a writer in the cafés of Paris. Instead, she spends her brief time in the City of Light running out of money and lining up with other immigrants to call home from a broken pay phone. But the months of befriending panhandling artists in the metro, sleeping on crowded floors, and dancing the tango at underground parties are given a lasting glow by her intense friendships with Martita and Paola. Over the years the three women disperse to three continents, falling out of touch and out of mind—until a rediscovered letter brings Corina’s days in Paris back with breathtaking immediacy.
