    Also, Elena Maria Viramontes at UTPA! It should be a good one. 🙂

    Yes! According to the UTPA website: “Helena Maria Viramontes, creative writing professor at Cornell University and author of “The Moths and Other Stories” (1985) and “Their Dogs Came with Them” (2008), two very influential texts on Chicana history, will read some of her work and host a book signing Feb. 22 at 4 p.m. in the ITT International Room. Viramontes will also conduct a writer’s workshop earlier in the day.”
