Susana Chavez-Silverman reading from Scenes from la Cuenca de Los Angeles
Click on the audio files below to hear Susana Chávez-Silverman read from her book Scenes from la Cuenca de Los Angeles. Lázaro Lima hailed Scenes from la Cuenca de Los Angeles as “a love story about how language can bring us closer to each other.”
Her inventive and flamboyant use of Spanglish, a hybrid English-Spanish idiom, and her adaptation of the confessional crónica, make for a reading (and listening) experience at once intimate and powerful.
