GuerrillaReads No. 16

Meet Yolanda Sahagún, a clever young woman who finds the symbolism in life’s smallest acts and events. She grew up in Palm City, an immigrant neighborhood near San Diego. Now she’s in college, thanks to a scholarship from the Daughters of the American Revolution in wealthy La Jolla.

In this guerrilla reading, Patricia Santana reads from her award-winning book, Ghosts of El Grullo, at the Latino Book and Family Festival.

The book was honored with an American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation and the Premio Aztlán Literary Prize from the National Latinos Writers Conference and the History and Literary program of the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
