Episode 42: The Taste of Sugar & the Publishing Industry with Novelist Marisel Vera

Paseo Podcast: Sharing Puerto Rican Stories

We welcome novelist, Marisel Vera, to the show! We talk about growing up in Chicago, specifically in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, the white-dominated publishing industry, and, among other things, her latest novel, The Taste of Sugar. Without giving too much away, the story takes place just shortly after Puerto Rico came under U.S. rule in 1898. It follows newlyweds Valentina Sánchez's and Vicente Vega’s journey from Puerto Rico to work on sugar plantations in Hawaii after losing everything in the San Ciriaco hurricane.
