Sandra Cisneros

The Joy of Words

Twenty-five years after publishing The House on Mango Street, the author is inspiring new writers.

Cisneros admires her garden below and wonders who will live in her house and what her legacy will be. "I always want to give back to the community, to elevate writers to another level, to teach people to honor their stories," she says softly.

The story doesn't end here...

Read the full Q and A with Sandra Cisneros, where she discusses the pivotal role her novel played in the acceptance of Latino culture, her years as an academic migrant, and how her views have evolved in the 25 years since its publication.
