About the Project

Sandra Cisneros, A Hispanic American author, was born on December 20, 1954 in Chicago, Illinois. She lived with her large Mexican family in a small, cramped apartment. As a child, she spent her time reading classics and fairy tales. She attended Loyola University and a workshop at the University of Iowa. She has won multiple awards for her writings, and she has been a teacher and mentor all around the country. She is viewed as one of the strong new woman voices that has broadened the range of perspectives in Mexican literature. One of her quoted sayings is, "Art is for all of us."

Look at our commentaries on "One Holy Night" and "Woman Hollering Creek" (two stories from the book Woman Hollering Creek).
