Cabañuelas | Book Reading with Norma E. Cantú

Saturday, June 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center for a book reading & signing of Norma E. Cantú’s new novel Cabañuelas! Books will be available for purchase.

“In Cabañuelas, both author and protagonist are ethnographers, co-weaving a story rich in descriptions of folklore, architecture, landscape, relationships, and academia while telling a transtemporal and transcontinental story of self-affirmation against the historical backdrops and center-stage landscapes of Spain, Mexico, and the United States.” — Larissa M. Mercado-López, coeditor of (Re)mapping the Latina/o Literary Landscape

About CABAÑUELAS 

Nena leaves Laredo, Texas, and moves to Madrid, Spain, to research the historical roots of traditional fiestas in Laredo. Immersing herself in post-Franco Spain and its rich history, its food, music, and fiestas, Nena finds herself falling for Paco, a Spaniard who works in publishing. Nena’s research and experiences teach her about who she is, where she comes from, and what is important to her, but as her work comes to a close, Nena must decide where she can best be true to her entire self: in Spain with Paco or in Laredo, her home, where her job and family await her return.
