"The House on Mango Street" by Sandra Cisneros

Season 2024 Episode 10 | 29m 23s

Celebrate the 40 year anniversary of “The House on Mango Street”, one of the most cherished novels of the last 50 years. Readers from all walks of life have fallen for the voice of Esperanza Cordero, growing up in Chicago and inventing for herself who and what she will become. “In English my name means hope,” she says. “In Spanish it means too many letters. It means sadness, it means waiting.”
