Sandra Cisneros is such an inspiration. Latinos can't help but to LOVE her. She has touched so many people through her work. Cisneros was born on December 20, 1954 in Chicago, Illinois. She is a Mexican-American writer. She has a B.A. in English from Loyola University Chicago and an M.F.A. from Iowa Writers' Workshop at the University of Iowa. She's won numerous awards for her literary masterpieces and written many books with The House on Mango Street being a top favorite and required reading in schools and colleges. She is also the founder of the Macondo Foundation and the Alfredo Cisneros del Moral Foundation. Her latest work was published in 2012, titled, "Have you seen Marie?" that on her website is described as a "lyrically told, richly illustrated fable for grown-ups about a woman's search for a cat who goes missing in the wake of her mother's death." Looking forward to reading that one. My favorite Cisneros' book is Women Hollering Creek and Other Stories. Which one is yours?
