THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: AUTHOR RUDY ANAYA ON LIFE’S JOURNEY, EDUARDO DÍAZ ON LATINO BASEBALL AND BASEBALL IN LATINO COMMUNITIES, BURUNDANGA BORICUA ON PUERTO RICO’S ECONOMIC CRISIS AND SERG HERNANDEZ ON TRUMP LATEST.
Greetings Latinopians! This week we start a series of special interviews with acclaimed Chicano author Rodolfo Anaya, best known for his classic coming of age novel, Bless Me Última. Since the passing of his wife in 2010, Anaya has written three major novels, rivaling his classic with Randy Lopez Goes Home, The Old Man’s Love Story and The Sorrows of Young Alfonso. In this interview Anaya speculates about the meaning of life’s journey.
Our regular bloggers José Umpierre and Eduardo Díaz return with their respective blogs, Burundanga Boricua and Mirándolo Bien. José confronts the challenges of the current economic crisis in Puerto Rico with a novel approach: a rap song! Eduardo explores how Latinos have taken to American baseball and how American baseball has, in turn, impacted Latino communities in America.
And, of course, don’t miss another Serg Hernández cartoon commentary on the Trump Presidential candidacy.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
