Spark: Jennine Capo Crucet's Imagination

Dec 18, 2015

"Two Miami girls reminisce about their chonga days, and other sources of inspiration."

That's my summary of this interview with author Jennine Capó Crucet, who grew up in Hialeah and has written the books that put the city on the map in the literary world. Yes -- Hialeah and the literary world are not mutually exclusive. Jennine lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, now, where the sound of prairie grass reminds her of ocean waves and where she's learning to write about a place that's not specifically "her own."
