Personal politics

Ana Castillo reading & book signing

For some, what is personal is also political. Renowned author Ana Castillo is a visionary, a risk taker, a feminist and an advocate for amplifying the voices within Chicana (Xicanx) and Latina (Latinx) communities. Her work was once included on a banned book list in the Tucson school district, which she took as an unabashed badge of honor. Castillo will be signing books and sharing her stories about where the personal and the political intersect at Sol Collective. $5; 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, at Sol Collective, 2574 21st Street;
