MSedano's Book Nook
LA, seen from the Eastside.
Soon it'll be planting time again in Pasadena, maybe I'll put in some corn. Right now, it's cold enough at night to enjoy a fire and a good book. Or talking about one.
Here are links to essays and reviews reacting to this, that, and sundry books,
teatro, arts events. But mostly fiction. Most of these appear at La Bloga, where my compadres and comadres in literature and literacy always have great books to recommend.
Every so often, I happen across a
volume that provokes some impulse that I have to write about it. If you're
to a good library system, you can order these titles and enjoy them. When
you do, I hope you'll be moved to write up your own experiences and send them
me for publication at Read! Raza's Book Nook, or as a guest column at La Bloga.
Please visit La Bloga for current updates on Chicana Chicano literature and related topics.
