Walking Home: Growing Up Hispanic in Houston
This groundbreaking, mixed-genre memoir journeys from the soil of Texas farmland near Floresville to the shrimpers’ nets of the Gulf Coast, near Matagorda. Three generations of Hispanic families are viewed through the faith-filled lens of the miraculous and the poignancy of dreams never realized. The journey continues to the mid-Twentieth century metropolis of Houston where what is done is as powerful as that which never happens. Join memorist Sarah Cortez as she broadens the definition of memoir to include the literary space of faith and the function of deep belief.
