The award-winning author of Esperanza Rising talks about her stunning new book, a fictional biography of Pablo Neruda's younger years that combines elements of magical realism with poetry, history and literary fiction. This inspirational book beautifully depicts how the awkward, shy, imaginative Chilean schoolboy Neftali Reyes, mesmerized by the natural world, became the world-renowned poet Pablo Neruda. Rita Wolf will perform an excerpt from the novel. Reading by Rita Wolf, conversation between Pam Muñoz Ryan and Madeline Cohen.
