Waiting for Fiestas / Esperando Las Fiestas

A bilingual invitation to open the window of the imagination and re-capture a sense of freedom through twenty six poems celebrating the joys of holidays and gatherings: Hallowen and Hannukah, Fourth of July and Cinco de mayo, Las posadas and Lunar New Year. Description of the origin and significance of Latino holidays are also included. Illustrated by images of the author’s art collection, from folk-art pieces gathered during their far-reaching travels to paintings by well known artists. This graphic presentation creates a parallel subtext that conveys cultural connections and solidarity among people from across the world.
