Description: through selections of music, art, poetry and literature, students will come to understand the nuances of Spanish and Puerto Rican youth culture. The presenter starts out with a brief description of her 30-year journey of exploration into the cultures of Spain and Puerto Rico, from living with a family of Spanish Gypsies in Seville to residing for the last twenty-four years in a small town in Puerto Rico. She then engages in multimedia activities related to her books. City of Sorrows tells of a Spanish Gypsy who is forced to face his greatest fears when a Spaniard is not able to let go of his prejudice and allows ethnicity to come before compassion. Dante’s Kiss is a dark love story about what happens when the supernatural collides with the natural world, and when being different means challenging what you don’t believe is right about your culture.
