Today, I’ve invited author, Ruben Degollado, to talk about his book, “The Family Izquierdo,” a multigenerational story that follows a family that lives on the Texas/Mexican border. We discuss authentic representation, mental health, curses, brujos, curanderas, Selena and menacing grackles. This book captured the nuance of the people and places of south Texas beautifully. You can order your copy of “The Family Izquierdo” through my online bookshop to support the show, as well as independent bookstores nationwide. You can also help out the show by following She Wore Black on Twitter and Instagram, and leaving us a review wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for joining us today.
