Leticia Hernández-Linares is a San Francisco-based poet, spoken word artist, musician, and "artevista." Her latest collection is called "Mucha Muchacha." Leticia explains how the Esquivel song "Mucha Muchacha," though annoying, still sparked memories of her partying abuelita that inspired her words. The book incorporates language play, music, and testimonio.
Leticia will also read the call-and-response poem, "Mucha Muchacha." Feel free to join in!
