When author Sandra Cisneros lost her mother, she says she felt alone like "a glove left behind at the bus station." That loneliness is central to Cisneros' latest book "Have You Seen Marie?", a colorful fable about the search for a lost cat, illustrated by Ester Hernandez. The author of "The House on Mango Street" joins us to talk about storytelling, Chicano art and what it takes to overcome the loss of someone beloved.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Sandra Cisneros, author of "Have You Seen Marie?" as well as "The House on Mango Street" and "Woman Hollering Creek and Other Stories"
