- Program Description
Michele Serros was still a student at Santa Monica College when her first book of poetry and short stories, Chicana Falsa and other stories of Death, Identity and Oxnard, was published. Newsweek recently named Serros, 36, "one of the top young women to watch for in the new century." Serros also made the Los Angeles Times bestsellers' list with her newest collection of fiction, How to be a Chicana Role Model. She reflects with host Ilan Stavans on her decision to become a writer and discusses her new book, a young adult fiction novel, tentatively titled Notes for a Medium Brown Girl.
