So this week is a deliberately more quiet week in Hijas events. As I mentioned over the weekend, I am headed to the beach on Sunday, the 22nd, and I have 8 deadlines for the end of July that I wanted to get in before I left town so that I had no articles hanging over my head (I am writing on everything from driving a Porsche Boxster around some tight mountain curves to the state of HIV/AIDS in my community) while I am sitting on that beach. I turned in two last night and now plan to write an article a day until I leave. So in order to do that, I needed to be in town to get it done. Alas, no travel this week for Hijas, but I am doing a couple things locally and I could use your help with one of them. On Wednesday night, I am filming an interview for a local arts television show that will air later in Charlotte. They would like me to read two, no more than 1 page passages from the book. Help a girl out! For those of you who have dived into Hijas, what passage(s) would you suggest?
