Join us for our Fall 2013 read of "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks."
One Book, One Bakersfield, One Kern has announced the Fall 2012 book will be “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros. What do you think? Have you read it before, or will this be your first time? What are your thoughts going into the read? The themes seem to echo many that our youth here in Kern County face as they grow up — regardless of race or ethnicity. (Although the book will certainly resonate with our 40 percent Latino population.) Please feel free to post your thoughts in the comment field below.
