I’m trying to get back into the storytelling now that the manuscript to my book is finished (see below).
I recently held a Tell Your True Tale workshop at East LA Public Library, which produced several fantastic stories.
Here’s one, by author Celia Viramontes. Cardboard Box Dreams is the tale of a day in the life of a bracero worker trying to get a contract.
Really great stuff. So are the other stories, which I’ll be putting up soon.
You can read other pieces by buying the book — Tell Your True Tale: East LA — that we produced out of the workshops on Amazon.com.
