With a Book in Their Hands: Chicano/a Readers and Readerships across the Centuries (Hardback)Manuel M. Martin-Rodriguez (editor)
- We can order this
Manuel M. Martin-Rodriguez has overseen several research projects aimed at documenting Chicana and Chicano reading practices and experiences. Here he gathers diverse and passionate accounts of reading drawn from that research. Books for many served as refuges from the sorrows of a childhood marked by violence or parental abandonment. And many of the contributors salute the roles of teachers in introducing poetry and stories into their lives.
