Love to Mamá: A Tribute to Mothers
In this beautiful and celebratory collection, thirteen poets write with joy, humor, and love about the powerful bond between mothers, grandmothers, and children. The poets represent a wide spectrum of Latino voices, from award-winning authors such as Francisco X. Alarcón, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Pat Mora, to Daniel A. Olivas, a Deputy Attorney General of the State of California, and Cristina Muñiz Mutchler, a 15-year-old new talent. They write passionately about their Puerto Rican, Cuban, Venezuelan, and Mexican American backgrounds and the undeniable influence of their mothers and grandmothers.
Illustrated with exuberance by Ecuadorian artist Paula S. Barragán M., Love to Mamá is sure to be embraced and treasured by everyone who wants to recognize mothers as one of our universal role models.
