This event, along with Ana Castillo’s memoir writing workshop, is in collaboration with Trinity University’s Latinx Heritage Month Series.

Join us for a reading, reception and book signing with distinguished author Ana Castillo.

Other publications are The Guardians, Peel My Love like an Onion, and many other books of fiction, poetry, and essays. Her newest novel, Give It to Me, won a 2014 LAMBDA Literary Award; her seminal collection, Massacre of the Dreamers: Essays on Xicanisma was re‑released as a 20th anniversary edition in November 2014; and the award‑winning Watercolor Women, Opaque Men was re‑released in a new edition in the fall of 2016 by Northwestern University Press. Castillo currently holds a faculty post at the Bread Loaf program with Middlebury College (VT). Previous teaching posts have included the first Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Endowed Chair at DePaul University, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Distinguished Visiting Scholar post at MIT, the Poet‑in‑Residence at Westminster College (UT), and the Lund‑Gil Endowed Chair at Dominican University (IL).
