Elva Treviño's 'Barefoot Heart' and Guadalupe's experience of 'HER'




Throughout the month of February, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents HER, a four part artist series combining dance, music, photography, and words. From now until the Saturday viewers are invited to share a tale, a fable, or a memory to celebrate the women around them for a series titled "HER: Words." Write on the walls and watch the stories evolve into a collection over time.

Through February 25

The San Antonio Public Library and the UT Health Science Center Libraries present author Elva Treviño Hart. Her memoir, Barefoot Heart: Stories of a Migrant Child, is a harrowing tale of prevailing against the barriers of race, gender, and class. Born in Pearsall, Hart was the youngest of six children and grew up with parents who worked in beet fields as migrant farm workers. Her memoir is a story of struggle and perseverance as Hart went on to earn advanced degrees in theoretical mathematics and computer science/engineering. Barefoot Heart is a bridge between Hart's past and present life. She will be reading on Thursday and Friday. Hart's memoir has been selected as the 2012 One Community/One Book selection of the San Antonio Public Library.
