Woman Without Shame: Poems by Sandra Cisneros is a moving collection of songs, elegies, and declarations that chronicle her pilgrimage toward rebirth and the recognition of her prerogative as a woman artist. Three-term U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo selected her best poems for Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light: Fifty Poems for Fifty Years, beginning with her early discoveries of her own voice and ending with moving reflections on our contemporary moment. Moderating is Ruth Behar, author of Everything I Kept/Todo lo que guardé.
