Award-winning author Sandra Cisneros, perhaps best known for her novel The House on Mango Street, will discuss her most recent book, A House of My Own: Stories from My Life, a richly illustrated compilation of true stories and nonfiction pieces that, taken together, form a jigsaw autobiography - an intimate album of a beloved literary legend. It spans three decades, draws inspiration from her hometown of Chicago and current residence in Mexico, and shares her artistic and intellectual influences.

Cisneros has received National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, the Lannan Literary Award, the American Book Award, and a MacArthur Fellowship. In 2016, President Obama awarded her the National Medal of Arts.
