Episode Summary

EDIT
Video from a Live Talks Los Angeles event featuring Sandra Cisneros in conversation with Hector Tobar. Held at Track 16 at Bergamot Station on Oct 10, 2012. For more info on Live Talks Los Angeles, visit: www.livetalksla.org The internationally acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street shares a deeply moving tale of loss, grief, and healing. The word “orphan” might not seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra Cisneros felt in the aftermath of her mother’s passing, alone like “a glove left behind at the bus station.” What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning. With full-color illustrations by artist Ester Hernandez that bring this transformative quest to vivid life, Have You Seen Marie? is a lyrically told fable for grownups that showcases a beloved author’s storytelling magic. Hear Cisneros, in her return to Live Talks LA, discuss this tale that reminds us how love, even when it goes astray, does not stay lost forever. Hector Tobar is the son of Guatemalan immigrants and a native of the city of Los Angeles. He is the former Buenos Aires and Mexico City Bureau Chief for the LA Times and shared a Pulitzer for the paper’s coverage of the 1992 riots. He is currently a Los Angeles-based columnist for the paper and also writes about books, arts and culture. His most recent novel is The Barbarian Nurseries. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed novel, The Tattooed Soldier and an essay collection, Translation Nation.moreless
