Summary expansion
  • The only daughter in a family of seven children, Sandra Cisneros learned early on how to claim the space and solitude she desired, and to rely on her imagination to take her to worlds other than the one around her. She grew up between two cultures: living in Chicago but traveling regularly to Mexico to visit family. This childhood spent navigating different languages, landscapes, and customs left Cisneros longing for a place that felt like home. She began writing stories and poems in high school, continued at Loyola University, and went on to graduate school at the prestigious Writers' Workshop at the University of Iowa. After a few years struggling to define herself as a writer, one success has followed another, and today Sandra Cisneros is one of the most widely read and admired writers of her generation. A committed activist for Mexican-American causes, she now lives in San Antonio, Texas - a city famed for its embrace of Mexican culture - in a purple house that she calls home. A Home in the Heart: The Story of Sandra Cisneros introduces young-adult readers to the groundbreaking author of Caramelo, Woman Hollering Creek, and The House on Mango Street, and relays the compelling story of her life.
