|TALK Book Discussion||
"Hispanic Heritage: Mothers, Sisters, and Daughters" is the Spring 2014 TALK book discussion series through the Kansas Humanities Council, which is a non-profit organization promoting understanding of the history and ideas that shape our lives and strengthen our sense of community.
Brand New Memory, by Elias Miguel Munoz
Bright, imaginative Gina Domingo lives entirely inside the teenage world of southern California pop culture. Although Cuban-American by birth, Gina is less a multiculturalist than an omniculturalist, absorbing everything in her path. But Gina's life with her well-to-do, protective parents (who are still coming to grips with their uprooted past and life in exile) takes an unexpected turn when her paternal grandmother Estela arrives from Cuba for a visit.
Discussion Leader Kim Stanley chairs the Department of Modern Languages at McPherson College. She received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Texas at Austin and her M.A. in Liberal Arts from St. Johns College at Santa Fe. She has won the Dean's Teaching Award at the University of Texas, the Professor of the Year Award (three times) at McPherson, and the Public Scholar Award from KHC. Kim is a former member of the KHC board of directors and has been leading TALK discussions since 1992.
