Danielle Evans - Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self & Patricia Engel - Vida

Sunday, November 14, 2010 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
These two debut collections of fiction feature striking voices and fresh perspectives on the coming-of age narrative. Engel who, like her narrator Sabina, is the daughter of Colombian immigrants, recounts a young woman’s navigation through her parents’ expectations, college, and assorted relationships as she moves from childhood in New Jersey to her own life in Miami. In Evans’s stories, teenage girls and young women face down a variety of troubles stemming from sexism, racism, and their own misjudgments.
