THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: EDUARDO DÍAZ ON THE MALHEUR TAKEOVER, RICARDO ANGEL GILB ON MEXICAN AMERICAN LITERATURE, DAGO GILB ON “VOICE” IN LITERATURE, JULIO MEDINA ON “THE GIFT,” SERGIO HERNÁNDEZ ON “TRUMP AND PALIN,” AND ANGELA ORTIZ’S PHOTO OF THE WEEK, “CLOUDS.”
We open this week with two exciting videos showcasing authors Dagoberto Gilb, winner of the PEN Hemingway Award, and his son, Ricardo Angel Gilb, who has recently co-edited an important new anthology of Mexican American Literature. De tal palo tal astilla. The talent of this versatile family is clear in these two videos–check them out!
Our regular blogger Eduardo Díaz returns with a commentary about the current takeover by armed “militias,” as they call themselves, of the Malheur Refuge in Oregon. Militia, really? Also returning this week is Julio Medina with his Serendipity blog, this time looking at a photographic “Gift.”
And Serg Hernández can’t be kept down as he comments on Donald Trump’s latest media nonsense, with Sara Palin yet. And, of course, don’t miss Angela Ortiz’s latest Photo of the week, “Clouds.”
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
