Y No Se Lo Tragó La Tierra / And the Earth Did Not Devour Him
by Tomás Rivera, translated by Evangelina Vigil-Pinon
An original and ground-breaking work about the lives of Mexican-American migrant workers of the 40s and 50s. Join our librarians for a discussion of this seminal book. Take a look with us at the state of migrant workers today, and how things have (or have not) changed for the better of the worse. Tell us your own stories of friends and family who may have experienced something similar, and how that has affected them. Help us explore the migrant worker experience, and how it relates to our own lives now, and in the past.
