Cuesta College’s 2019 Book of the Year program will bring renowned Mexican-American Chicana scholar, novelist, and poet Ana Castillo to Cuesta College in March of 2019, to discuss her memoir Black Dove: Mama, Mi’jo and Me. The memoir includes a collection of essays that offer an intimate look at pivotal experiences in Castillo’s life across three generations: the relationship between Castillo and her immigrant mother, Castillo’s own challenges as a single mother to her son, and her childhood memories of growing up in the Mexican barrios of Chicago.
