Join us for a discussion of When I was Puerto Rican by Esmeralda Santiago.
Esmeralda Santiago’s story begins in rural Puerto Rico, where her childhood was full of both tenderness and domestic strife, tropical sounds and sights as well as poverty. When her mother, Mami, a force of nature, takes off to New York with her seven, soon to be eleven children, Esmeralda, the oldest, must learn new rules, a new language, and eventually take on a new identity. (Amazon)

Books will be available at the Circulation Desk. Here’s a look at the book…
