Cost: FREE

By turns “defiant, satirically hilarious, sexy, and wise” (Booklist), Ana Castillo is one of the preeminent voices of the Chicana experience. Vibrantly experimental in style, she explores themes of feminism, oppression, and classism in a vast array of works, including several collections of poetry and many novels, including Peel My Love Like an Onion, The Guardians, and So Far From God. Castillo is also a prolific short story writer, essayist, playwright, editor and literary translator. Give it to Me tells the story of a recent 40-something divorcée who finds adventure with her gangster younger cousin.

Editor-in-chief of Gourmet for ten years, Ruth Reichl is the author of four bestselling memoirs: Comfort Me with Apples, Tender at the Bone, and Garlic and Sapphires, and For You Mom, Finally. She has been the restaurant critic for the New York Times and the food editor and restaurant critic for the Los Angeles Times. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including 6 prestigious James Beard Awards. In her debut novel Delicious!, a young woman finds herself the sole employee of a shuttered New York food magazine and stumbles upon a mysterious collection of letters written during World War II.
