New KS Humanities logo"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.


Told in a series of vignettes stunning for their eloquence, THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET is Sandra Cisneros's greatly admired novel of a young girl growing up in the Latino section of Chicago. Acclaimed by critics, beloved by children, their parents and grandparents, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, it has entered the canon of coming-of-age classics.
Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous, THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET tells the story of Esperanza Cordero, whose neighborhood is one of harsh realities and harsh beauty. Esperanza doesn't want to belong--not to her rundown neighborhood, and not the the low expectations the world has for her. Esperanza's story is that of a young girl coming into her power, and inventing for herself what she will become.
