Award-winning novelist, poet, and author of The House on Mango Street, Sandra Cisneros, discusses her new book, A House of My Own: Stories from My Life, in conversation with Elena Passarello (Let Me Clear My Throat, 2015 Oregon Literary Fellowship recipient). A House of My Own is a richly illustrated compilation of true stories and nonfiction pieces that, taken together, form a jigsaw autobiography—an intimate album of a beloved literary legend.
Please note: Attendees must purchase or pick up their festival tickets at the Portland Art Museum box office before entering the First Congregational UCC (buy online now and avoid long lines!). All signings for authors on the Cole Haan Stage will be at the First Congregational UCC. HOWEVER, all book sales will be at the Powell’s festival bookstore at the Portland Art Museum. Therefore, attendees are VERY STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to purchase books they would like signed by authors appearing on the Cole Haan Stage BEFORE entering the First Congregational UCC.
