Living In and Between Cultures

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Dr. Maria Souza Hogan, a world language teacher at Litchfield High School and the author of her recently published memoir Samba of Survival: My Light Within, will discuss her book and the lifelong effects of emigrating from Brazil. Bernardo de Castro of Woodbury, who also hails from Brazil and works as a public school science teacher, will join her in this conversation about their heritage, their journeys to the US, and their experiences of their native and adopted cultures over time.

Through their stories, Hogan and de Castro will shed a deeply human, sometimes humorous, and always empathetic light on the odyssey so many people of all ages undertake when they leave their homelands to start a new life in this country. Hear their stories and join the conversation about a topic that makes the headlines and touches all our lives every day.

Woodbury Poet Laureate Sandy Carlson will facilitate the conversation, and attendees will be invited to ask questions and share their thoughts. Copies of Samba of Survival will be available for purchase.
