ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM | est. 2013

Established in 2013, the Tanner Humanities Center’s Artist in Residence program brings diverse artists to Salt Lake City to lecture, teach, research, and give culturally significant performances and workshops.  On April 25 and 26, 2017, we will host award winning writer Sandra Cisneros.

 

The University of Utah’s Tanner Humanities Center presents “An Evening with Sandra Cisneros” hosted by KUER 90.1 FM’s Doug Fabrizio

 

FEB. 10, 2017 | The Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah presents An Evening with Sandra Cisneros hosted by KUER’s Doug Fabrizio, producer and host of RadioWest, at Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, April 25 at 7:30 p.m. The event is open to the public but tickets are required.

Cisneros will discuss the Chicana literary movement, her writing and the influence of her heritage on her work. She will read excerpts from her books, including her recent memoir A House of My Own: Stories From My Life

“Sandra writes not simply of the Latino experience,” said Bob Goldberg, director of the Tanner Center. “Her words reach to people of all communities and remind us of the human spirit that binds us together.” 

Additionally, Cisneros will conduct an outreach activity for Salt Lake City students in partnership with the Office of Engagement, Center for Latin American Studies, School for Cultural and Social Transformation, and Glendale Middle School.
