Ana Castillo

Ana Castillo, award-winning scholar, poet, author and Dominican's 2014-15 Lund-Gill Chair presents "Twenty Years of Xicanisma: Latina Empowerment in the U.S."

Her novel, The Mixquiahuala Letters, won the American Book Award in 1986 and remains one of the most revered and studied works of the Latina feminist movement. She will discuss these themes and share insights from her four decades as a writer during the Lund-Gill Lecture October 9.

The event is free and open to the public. Due to limited seating, registration is required using the form below.

The Lund-Gill Chair is named for former Dominican University President Sr. Candida Lund, OP, and former English professor, Sr. Cyrille Gill, OP. Each year, the Lund-Gill Chair in the Rosary College of Arts and Sciences brings to campus an individual of the highest moral and intellectual reputation who can address themes and issues at the heart of the liberal arts and sciences.
