BANNED BOOK. In honor of Banned Books Week, Línea Abierta offers an exclusive interview with a Chicana author banned in Tucson, Arizona. Carmen Tafolla’s Curandera, originally published in 1983, broke ground using the Spanish and English code-switching of her West Side San Antonio barrio as a literary language. Tafolla discusses what it means that this and other multicultural books were taken out of Tucson classrooms, and what can be done to stop the banning of books and protect the freedom to read.

Guest: Carmen Tafolla, Poet Laureate of the City of San Antonio, San Antonio, TX, www.carmentafolla.com
