Ana Castillo

Xicana feminist Ana Castillo is a novelist, poet, short story writer, essayist, playwright, mother and activist. Her work — especially her novels So Far from God and Sapogonia, and collection Massacre of the Dreamers: Essays on Xicanisma — has been lauded over the years for its treatment of race, class, gender and socio-political histories. On Tuesday, Castillo visits the Guadalupe to read from her new memoir Black Dove, which takes an honest look at her life as a daughter of immigrants in Chicago and as the mother of a troubled Chicano youth in a nation full of racism, police brutality and mass incarceration.
