Latest blurb and web radio interview
Just received the final blurb/review that will be uploaded to the Amazon page for the Everyday Chica, Music and More link.
This one is by New York Times Bestselling Heidi Durrow, author of The Girl Who Fell From the Sky (Algonquin Books)—
“The poems of Everyday Chica put the disparate rhythms of the Mixed experience in sweet harmony. Cecilia Rodríguez Milanés writes beautifully of the dichotomies of being an exile who has never known her native soil, an American who longs to claim a Cuban past, and a girl turned into a mighty woman despite society’s ideas of womanhood that are designed to break her. Sweet, fierce and heart-felt are these poems.”
I am so grateful for the wonderful response to the CD and the poems. I’ll be talking about these this Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time–tune in to the web radio show Cubanarama. You can call in at (347) 843-4717 or send in questions via email/website.
Please join me and the host, Cubanarama’s founder Marta Sosa (pictured below), for a conversation about writing, language, books, culture and more.
