So happy to introduce May’s #bookofthemonth
Recommended by my friend and fabulous Chicana poet @gabby_ayyyy 
Immediately upon opening the pages and reading the first few lines I knew this story was right for me.
Victor Villaseñor #chicanoauthor and literary healer shares his story of his journey as a Latino child within the public education system during the 40s, the disparaging attitudes of educators and the abuse in which he received, and how he overcame life’s little obstacles to become one of the greatest Mexican-American writers of our time.

I hope you enjoy this read!

Books saved my sanity, knowledge opened the locked places in me and taught me first how to survive and then how to soar.

I love the Lit & Luz festival because it brings attention to some of the best Mexican writers and artists of the moment. Since they don’t get a lot of exposure in mainstream media, I’m so happy to know this entire festival exists to do that. Through the Lit & Luz festival, I gotten to know about Christina Rivera Garza, Eduardo Rubasa, Aura Xilonen, Fernanda Melchor, Julian Herbert and a many others. However, beyond that the festival also features our very own best Chicago writers and artists.
The festival kicks off Saturday, Oct. 13th with the So Close, Far Away Exhibition Opening at Sector 2337!
Check out @makelit for more details on the festival schedule!
