Female Shakespeare of Mexico
October 18, 2006 Wednesday 3PM CT
Pioneers often must struggle. The pioneering and tremendously independent spirit of 17th century Mexican poet Sor Juana continues to inspire and captivate today. This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, join Emily Auerbach, in for Jean Feraca, and her guests for a discussion of the life and work of Sor Juana.

She is now in her final year of a Dual Language program (English-Spanish) in a Kenosha public middle school. The story was part of her Spanish Language Arts class (in Spanish) so at least some of our youth are learning about this amazing Latin American woman."
